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.
A farmers association provided support on planning and facilitation of land stewardship, with particular focus on grazing in Sønderup river valley.
