Projects & Practice
project focusing on the protection and promotion of a breed of cattle specific to Western Macedonia, the Greek Red Kastoria-Kristalopigi cow.
An example of a large-scale previously state owned farm, which now successfully combines economic sustainability and the provision of public goods.
The creation of wetlands in the agricultural landscape can contribute in decreasing the leakage of nutrients into water bodies.
A company managing publicly-owned forests purchased new machinery to turn forest residues and logging waste into valuable biomass fuel.
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.
A biofuel production and packaging line was established in an olive growing region of Greece. The waste residues are used to produce biofuel (PELLET) offering considerable economic and environmental benefits.
