This good practice dissemination platform is just one of a number of multi-method communication strategies being implemented by the NRN to maximize the success of the objectives set out in Ireland’s Rural Development Programme (RDP) 2014-2020 (extended to 2022) on behalf of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM).

Protecting Farmland Pollinators Project 

This EIP-AGRI project aims to develop a flexible mechanism that encourages all farmers to make their whole-farm more pollinator friendly in a way that is measurable and will not impact on productivity.
