In response to the COVID-19 crisis, a website was set up under Rural Development Programme Technical Assistance to help match agricultural companies with jobseekers
Projects & Practice
Setting up an EIP Operational Group that aims to enable Flemish farmers to operate small-scale anaerobic digesters more efficiently.
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 no-till cultivation equipment to enhance soil quality, reduce pollution and maximise their soil’s capacity to act as a carbon sink.
Targeted advice on climate mitigation actions for individual farms provides farmers with consultant support to effectively reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Using biomass residues to produce a fertiliser, which is then used to grow trees, and will, over time, improve soil quality, has led to significant financial savings for nature conservation organisations and tree nurseries.
Offering a coordinated multi-stakeholder approach in terms of training, technology transfer and decision making to finding alternative approaches to pest management and reducing pesticide use in the wine-producing sector of Tuscany.
Communities coming together to collaboratively develop locally suited, innovative actions to mitigate climate change in rural Finland.
Collaborative learning and tools for assessing soil health contribute to farmers’ understanding of problems and alternative management strategies.
