The challenge of increasing food production without harming the environment might be solved through innovative production techniques, such as aquaponics.
Projects & Practice
EAFRD funding was used to install a biogas plant, covering the farms electricity needs and generating income from the sale of electricity to the national grid.
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.
A regional cooperative chain for biomass was established to respond to the increasing demand for woodchip.
A permanent local international market established on a village at the Slovak-Hungarian border enabled local producers from both countries to sell their products more effectively.
