The creation of wetlands in the agricultural landscape can contribute in decreasing the leakage of nutrients into water bodies.
Projects & Practice
A Finnish NGO used EAFRD funding in a transnational project to exchange and develop best practices for integrating immigrants and refugees in rural areas.
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.
