An EIP Operational Group was set up to strengthen the food chain and create short distribution channels for small and medium farms in the Madrid region.
Projects & Practice
Developing an innovative model of local-level bio-waste.
The cooperative ‘Dobrina’ used LEADER support for awareness raising and capacity building activities in order to promote locally produced high quality fresh food to public schools and attract more producers.
In a rural area without public sewage system, a LEADER project helped the local population to get familiar with the new environmental standards, legislation and requirements on wastewater treatment. It also enabled them to make informed decisions on which wastewater treatment technology to use.
