1. Information about the project

The BOND project aims to promote a healthier, more productive and harmonious farming sector in Europe. This will be achieved through (i) drawing up solutions from case studies and success stories and building trust among farmer and land manager groups; (ii) enabling different organisations to come closer together, to form larger networks; and (iii) developing ties with entities with different interests and powers, to reach a stronger position in decision-making. For further information about the project please see:
