Projects & Practice
A project that aims to connect people with their local environment, food production and with each other.
A voluntary rescue team used LEADER support to obtain equipment to enable the volunteers to increase the range of incidents they can respond to, as well as to raise awareness among the local population about volunteering.
This project combined state-of-the-art sensoring techniques and models with a participatory monitoring process with farmers and water authorities to create a common understanding of the main local challenges and possible solutions to enhance water quality. In addition, the process empowered individual farmers to become equal partners with water authorities as they gained knowledge and access to data. Problems with water management differ between regions, but the process of jointly collecting, learning from and acting on data can be applied across regions.
In response to increasing demand for wood fuel, a wood processing company in Greece, used support from the LEADER measure to set up a new pellet production line.
Setting up collaborative water system measures and a governance approach to increase self-sufficiency of freshwater availability for agriculture.
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group project on the use of insects for adding value to organic residues from agriculture.
Using biomass residues to produce a fertiliser, which is then used to grow trees, and will, over time, improve soil quality, has led to significant financial savings for nature conservation organisations and tree nurseries.
An example of a LEADER financed local festival that became a tool to promote cultural heritage and create the conditions necessary for sustainable local development.
Using LEADER support to set up a climbing park and create opportunities for diversified local economic development.
