Setting up collaborative water system measures and a governance approach to increase self-sufficiency of freshwater availability for agriculture.
Projects & Practice
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group project on the use of insects for adding value to organic residues from 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 major exporting agricultural company in Portugal, used EAFRD support to develop a state-of-the-art innovative, greenhouse production unit.
A series of theoretical and practical training courses on work safety for small private forest owners and forest users.
A fruit and vegetables producing cooperative used RDP support to expand its cold storage capacity in order to better respond to market trends.
Two RDP funded projects enabled a company specialised on biomass heating to grow by financing the purchase of mobile wood chipper and later on a pelleting system.
In response to the current societal demand for responsible business management and improved animal welfare, farmers in the Netherlands developed an innovative animal friendly barn.
A regional cooperative chain for biomass was established to respond to the increasing demand for woodchip.
In a rural area without public sewage system, a LEADER project helped the local population to get familiar with the new environmental standards, legislation and requirements on wastewater treatment. It also enabled them to make informed decisions on which wastewater treatment technology to use.
