Projects & Practice
Setting up collaborative water system measures and a governance approach to increase self-sufficiency of freshwater availability for agriculture.
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.
A transnational cooperation project to promote DIY solutions for renewable energy production in rural communities.
The construction of two small water basins that minimise the risk of floods and offer a habitat that promotes biodiversity.
Building a reservoir to catch runoff water and provide protection against floods in a vulnerable area.
A series of seminars to improve the economic performance and viability of agricultural enterprises, by offering information and training on risk management tools.
A company created a modular rearing system that allows them to combine egg and quality rooster meat production, while respecting the environment and animal welfare.
A canal stream was reconstructed to get extra water storage capacity and to improve the water quality and biodiversity in the surrounding area.
Natural potential of rural areas often remains unexploited. In Estonia the construction of a water themed park generated interest in the countryside and attracted visitors through promoting eco-tourism and environmental education.
