The creation of wetlands in the agricultural landscape can contribute in decreasing the leakage of nutrients into water bodies.
Projects & Practice
A Finnish NGO used EAFRD funds to develop a network of nature-based service providers and activities to support their development such as study trips and work groups.
Three Finnish artists used EAFRD funding to transform a remote former school in rural Finland into a residence for international artists, now the largest in all Scandinavia.
This LEADER-funded project created several small wetlands and helped raise awareness of and interest in water protection among landowners. It also contributed to increasing the amount of available water in the island of Gotland.
