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.
Projects & Practice
The ‘Climate and Energy Region’ is an integrated awareness raising campaign on climate change, addressed to children, young people, adults, businesses and communities.
The project took nature-friendly vine cultivation on a family farm a step further to develop zero-waste processing methods that valorise all by-products of grapes in a sustainable and fully circular way. The resulting seeds, oil and flour have proved very popular with customers.
In response to the changing global markets, a dairy used Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to reorient its production and maintain its export potential.
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.
A dynamic agricultural cooperative used Rural Development Programme support for the setting up of a modern seed processing facility in order to enhance its competitiveness.
