The challenge of increasing food production without harming the environment might be solved through innovative production techniques, such as aquaponics.
Projects & Practice
RDP funding helped convert a disused building into an inspiring renewable energy visitor centre in Feldheim – Germany’s first village to be supplied with 100 % renewable energy.
An advisory programme on reducing nutrient pollution, implemented at county level, helps minimise the impact of agriculture on the environment.
An ecovillage was developed on Sweden’s Gotland island using EAFRD funding, providing a model for environmentally-friendly accommodation, waste water treatment, food and energy production. The site is also a template for non-consumerist approaches.
