A case study on NRN support to designing LEADER.
Projects & Practice
In order to contribute more effectively to combating climate change, a Romanian LAG included energy adaptation and mitigation projects in its local development strategy. This case study looks at the role of LEADER in promoting renewable energies and energy efficiency.
Setting up an EIP Operational Group that aims to enable Flemish farmers to operate small-scale anaerobic digesters more efficiently.
Developing a new and practical system to manage pig manure more efficiently, as a means to significantly reduce NH3 emissions and produce green energy.
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.
Communities coming together to collaboratively develop locally suited, innovative actions to mitigate climate change in rural Finland.
In Finland, trialling the winter harvesting of the common reed provides a greater availability of sustainable resources with collateral environmental benefits.
Collaborative learning and tools for assessing soil health contribute to farmers’ understanding of problems and alternative management strategies.
Elevated growing trays and the automation of some management tasks has enabled strawberry production to be less reliant on external inputs and to re-use irrigation water.
A transnational cooperation project to promote DIY solutions for renewable energy production in rural communities.
