Agricultural nature conservation: Water, Land and Dikes

WLD (Water, Land and Dikes) is an organisation of farmers that has started as an agricultural nature conservation organisation. Because the organisation was able to get funding for projects, a wide knowledge base was developed that is used for discussing the new Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) with the national government. WLD proposed to do a pilot. In total 4 pilots in 4 different regions were subsidised by the government, of which one pilot was done by WLD. In this pilot WLD practiced with being an ‘implementation organisation’ and developed new services.
