Investing in cutting edge production techniques (hydroponics in pots) allowed a farmer to fill a gap in the market increasing the availability of vegetables in winter, with minimal environmental impact.
Projects & Practice
This pan-Slovenian project is designed to combat the consequences of natural disasters that have affected forests across the country in the last six years. The project includes sustainable measures to restore damaged forests, adapting them to climate change, and is focused on areas that are under the greatest pressure.
A young female farmer invested in the construction of greenhouses and an irrigation system to improve her farm’s profitability and mitigate production risks linked to climate change.
A cooperative focused on quality cheese production, used Rural Development Programme support to expand its facilities and thus ensure the continuous growth of its business.
Planting new woodland under a scheme in a partnership between Forestry services, a local authority and the local community.
A small family forestry business used RDP support to acquire new machinery that would enable it to respond to the increasing demand for forest services.
In an area where the agricultural sector is under pressure due the expansion of a nearby urban centre, the diversification of farming activities e.g. ice-cream production and marketing, can ensure the farm’s sustainability.
A subsistence farm used RDP support in order to become commercially viable by investing in organic production.
An afforestation project to protect the largest body of freshwater in Guadeloupe and improve the biodiversity in the surrounding area.
