Agri-environmental extension services in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland
This report presents the results of a study on agri-environmental extension services in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. Agri-environmental extension services can be defined as the organized exchange of information and the purposive transfer of skills to farmers with the aim to reduce undesirable negative environmental impacts. The study was conducted as a part of a recent Swedish initiative that tries to raise the Baltic Sea region focus upon such services. They may serve as a cost-effective and necessary instrument to improve the environmental status of the region’s freshwaters and eventually in the Baltic Sea itself.
