The challenge of increasing food production without harming the environment might be solved through innovative production techniques, such as aquaponics.
Projects & Practice
A farm used RDP support to set up a micro district heating system to produce heating from wood biomass and at the same time expand its leisure and tourism facilities.
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.
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.
