An EIP Operational Group developed and tested a unique end-to-end agroforestry production process that is sustainable, profitable for the farm and the processing company, and which benefits consumers through products made in a way that supports the environment.
An EIP Operational Group worked on the reintroduction of ancient wheat species in the context of current practices applied at farm level.
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.
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.
