Supporting co-operation and knowledge sharing to tackle eutrophication in a vulnerable lake system.
Projects & Practice
On-farm processing can add value to the product and can also make farming a more attractive choice for young farmers - as demonstrated by a berry farm in Finland.
The creation of wetlands in the agricultural landscape can contribute in decreasing the leakage of nutrients into water bodies.
A Finnish University used EAFRD funding to organise information days, pilot projects and professional tours to enable food processing companies to develop their local sales.
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.
