Workgroup C. Implementing organic food production in the DRB
Oros Sršen, Ankica
The aim of the project is a more sustainable agriculture and the re-ruralisation of remote mountainous regions in the Danube River Basin through the strengthening and establishment of organic farms in selected less developed mountainous regions, and through educating the demographically young population of the Danube area to organic farming methods and practices and to the ecological relevance of quality farming. Organic food production implements traditional and indigenous knowledge, fosters a more eco-friendly use of soil and water resources, and allows farmers in market-marginalized areas to rely on local resources and food distribution systems, therefore addressing the challenges of demographic change in mountainous regions by creating local networks and strengthening marketing activities in the selected regions.
