Piloting a tool that helps assess the impact potential and necessary points of improvement of LEADER projects, already during the project’s application phase.
Projects & Practice
Support from the rural development programme was used to buy new machinery and expand the production capacity of a biogas plant.
Previously uncultivated and overgrown agricultural land was restored and was used to set up a new competitive and sustainable business.
The creation of wetlands in the agricultural landscape can contribute in decreasing the leakage of nutrients into water bodies.
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.
