Cluster initiatives for innovative agroecological methods to protect steppe landscape
The main objective of the project is to contribute to sustainable organic beekeeping in Ukraine as an effective tool of agroecological influence towards steppe landscape. The project is aimed at the dissemination of best practices and new scientific approach to beekeeping on steppe landscape in Ukraine, and establishing partnerships with local authorities, communities, scientists, farmers aiming at land degradation reduction. To achieve these goals the teaching and demonstration apiary of organic bee-keeping on the basis of Tavria State Agrotechnological University, with the size of 2 hectares, was established and supplied with modern equipment including solar panels to provide renewable energy for apiaries, which contributed to the reduction of CO2 emissions, and the
formation of environmental awareness of citizens.
