The creation of wetlands in the agricultural landscape can contribute in decreasing the leakage of nutrients into water bodies.
Projects & Practice
An agricultural holding installed 42 ha of pastures which helped increase the farm’s livestock while increasing carbon sequestration and offering environmental services.
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.
