The construction of two small water basins that minimise the risk of floods and offer a habitat that promotes biodiversity.
Projects & Practice
Building a reservoir to catch runoff water and provide protection against floods in a vulnerable area.
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.
The construction of a water reservoir helped combat the more frequent extreme weather events such as heavy rainfall and forest fires due to climate change.
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.
