GRANT I TRAINING - FROM THE FIELD TO THE TABLE
Association for Protection, Promotion and Education on Food "Slow Food Bitola", Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia
Association "Slow Food Vodno" and citizens’ association "EKO ROSALES".
The aim of project "From the field to the table - channeling the problems of farmers through the publication of position statements and other written forms" is to improve the sustainability of the production of small agricultural producers in the region of Mavrovo - Rostuse and the southeastern region of FYR Macedonia using traditional methods of production, through recognizing their needs and problems and their consideration with decision-makers at the national level.
Financing of this project will enable the association "Slow Food Bitola" and its partners to help agricultural producers to compensate for individual deficiencies by using flexibility measures for small farmers and by providing direct sales of quality cheeses through identifying problems and their presentation to decision makers. In addition, the project will analyze the contribution of products with a geographical origin label to rural development and the protection of biodiversity by assessing the advantages and disadvantages of EU quality schemes and their implementation. In addition, within the project, a public debate on sustainable rural development in FYR Macedonia and the promotion of small producers' models for sustainable production will be initiated.
The project is funded by the European Union within the regional project "Sustainable agriculture for sustainable Balkans: Strengthening advocacy capacities of CSOs and developing policies in the Western Balkans" implemented by the regional consortium of CSOs: IEP (Albania), FLOROZON (Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia) AKTIV (Kosovo *), CZIP (Montenegro), led by ORCA (Serbia).
In addition to "Slow Food Bitola" association and partner organizations, the project is also participated by association "DAShI" from FYR Macedonia
