‘Nos Oignons’ is an association that supported the preparation and implementation of three RDP funded projects that promote social farming in Wallonia.
Projects & Practice
The creation of wetlands in the agricultural landscape can contribute in decreasing the leakage of nutrients into water bodies.
A start-up business in Finland used RDP financing to carry out a feasibility study which helped lower the risks in upscaling their production capacity of biocomposites.
The construction of a water reservoir helped combat the more frequent extreme weather events such as heavy rainfall and forest fires due to climate change.
A Finnish NGO used EAFRD funds to develop a network of nature-based service providers and activities to support their development such as study trips and work groups.
Local authorities in France’s Midi-Pyrénées region used EAFRD funding to develop a medical centre to improve the quality of health services particularly for the elderly.
This LEADER-funded project created several small wetlands and helped raise awareness of and interest in water protection among landowners. It also contributed to increasing the amount of available water in the island of Gotland.
LEADER funding in two subsequent projects helped a small metalware company grow its size and capacity and take advantage of new market opportunities.
Thanks to a LEADER supported investment, a shoe repair and manufacturing enterprise constructed its own production facility benefiting from savings on rent and easier access to the market.
EAFRD funding enabled setting up a sawn timber production company in northeast Greece that employs modern equipment and contributes to the local economy by using local resources.
