An EIP AGRI operational group was set up in Emilia Romagna to identify agronomic techniques that contribute to the reduction of Green House Gas (GHG) emissions in organic farming.
Planting new woodland under a scheme in a partnership between Forestry services, a local authority and the local community.
Setting up an anti-hail system over a newly planted orchard of cherry trees, in order to mitigate the impact of climate change over agricultural production.
A community centre used support from the rural development programme to enhance its services and premises in order not to exclude people with Dementia.
A network that helps improve sustainability through farmer-led innovation. ‘Field labs’ and research grants provide farmers with skills, support and scientific backing to find solutions to the challenges which farmers face.
Scotland’s RDP has adopted simplified administration systems that include a ‘two-tier’ application process for RDP grants. This was introduced to provide proportionate ‘fast-track’ procedures for projects requiring smaller amounts of RDP funding.
A leading manufacturer of conserves and jams used RDP support to increase its winter water storage capacity for use during the summer dry months.
Turning an abandoned park area and its gardens into a community hub to create opportunities for social interaction, training and employment.
