In Moldova, same as in the Czech Republic, wind and water erosion, as a consequence of intensive agriculture, is a significant problem. The following brochure was produced by the non-profit organization Biotica, as part of our joint project "Guardians of Nature Moldova: Strengthening the rights of communities on both sides of the Dniester." The brochure briefly presents the function of green belts in the protection of agricultural land and outlines the various ways in which each farmer can design and create green belts on his land so the fertile soil will be protected and it will be possible to use it the same way in the future.
For more than 10,000 years, agriculture has fed us and ensured the development of humanity. However, we have not only industrialized agriculture, but also transformed our attitude toward everything alive - in the soil, water, and air - treating surrounding ecosystems as machines that can work and be reapired when they break down. But it's not really like that!
The brochure is free to download via the yellow link below.
The material was created with the financial support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as part of the Transition program.
