Using the Agri-environment-climate Measure to support the preservation of the Hungarian Coldblood horse breed.
Projects & Practice
This pan-Slovenian project is designed to combat the consequences of natural disasters that have affected forests across the country in the last six years. The project includes sustainable measures to restore damaged forests, adapting them to climate change, and is focused on areas that are under the greatest pressure.
A family farm converted to organic lavender farming in order to diversify their offer of products and services in an environmentally sustainable way.
The project took nature-friendly vine cultivation on a family farm a step further to develop zero-waste processing methods that valorise all by-products of grapes in a sustainable and fully circular way. The resulting seeds, oil and flour have proved very popular with customers.
Organic and biodynamic farms cooperate to jointly acquire conservation tillage equipment (subsoilers and no till seeding machine) to enhance soil quality, reduce pollution and maximise their soil’s capacity to act as a carbon sink
A small family forestry business used RDP support to acquire new machinery that would enable it to respond to the increasing demand for forest services.
An organic mountain farm uses indigenous breeds to produce high-quality meat, while preserving the local environment and genetic resources.
A farm used RDP support to set up a micro district heating system to produce heating from wood biomass and at the same time expand its leisure and tourism facilities.
A French hazelnut farm used EAFRD support to develop a visitor centre, helping boost direct sales and educate citizens on hazelnut production and processing.
Farmers in France’s Auvergne region used EAFRD support to preserve peatland and wet meadows in two Natura 2000 areas where over a hundred farmers raise cattle.
