A rural women’s association used Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to organise wool processing training courses and to create employment opportunities by valorising wool, a by-product of sheep meat production.
Projects & Practice
In order to maintain the traditional activity of extensive sheep and cattle grazing, the government of Andalusia created a pilot training programme on pastoralism for those that wanted to pursue a new career.
The project aimed to develop local participatory activities within the Natura 2000 sites of Andalusia.
‘Nature Connects’ is a campaign to raise and generate awareness on the importance of biodiversity in rural landscapes by bringing together land owners, experts and the broader public.
