Projects & Practice
The Organic farming measure in the Austrian Rural Development Programme (RDP) helps preserve and enhance biodiversity; establish nutrient cycles on farms and reduce input, while also increasing soil fertility.
Supporting this environmentally sound and biodiversity-promoting management action is one of the most successful operations of the Austrian Agri-Environmental-Climate Scheme.
An association used RDP support to turn the ‘disadvantages’ of long periods of cold and darkness in northern Sweden, into a unique selling point for tourism.
Support from the rural development programme was used to buy new machinery and expand the production capacity of a biogas plant.
An educational institution for farmers in Austria used RDP support to develop a training programme using digital, web-based technologies and applications.
