CAP funds help identify opportunities for improving localised linen production.
Projects & Practice
An EIP Operational Group worked on upscaling the production of Plasma Activated Water (PAW) and on demonstrating its effectiveness and cost efficiency as a sustainable nitrogen fertiliser.
A project that has ensured the conservation and reuse of traditional farm buildings across Ireland.
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.
The North Connemara Locally Led Agri-Environmental Scheme is a local agricultural scheme to incentivise farmers to incorporate agricultural animals in improving the ecology of their land.
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.
Planting new woodland under a scheme in a partnership between Forestry services, a local authority and the local community.
Restoration of a meadow irrigation ditch to revive a multi-centennial tradition that existed throughout Europe and over time has produced meadows of outstanding flora.
An environmental NGO implemented a project to preserve and maintain an old clay pit that provides shelter to a number of rare and endangered species.
