The project includes sustainable measures to restore damaged forests, adapting them to climate change, and is focused on areas that are under the greatest pressure.
A social enterprise used RDP funding to foster social innovation and entrepreneurship in one of the most depopulated regions in Europe.
A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
The project took nature-friendly vine cultivation on a family farm a step further to develop zero-waste processing methods that valorise all by-products of grapes in a sustainable and fully circular way. The resulting seeds, oil and flour have proved very popular with customers.
A small family forestry business used RDP support to acquire new machinery that would enable it to respond to the increasing demand for forest services.
