Chisinau, 14 March /MOLDPRES/ - A network of about 100 laboratories and lighthouses, which also includes Moldova, will be created at the European level, in order to ensure the transition to sound soils. This was the subject of a today’s conference dedicated to the European Union’s Mission, A Soil Deal for Europe, held in Chisinau.
Moldova will be able to benefit from opportunities of financing, in order to create three living labs, which will be part of an international research consortium.
Attending the conference, Deputy Prime Minister, Agriculture and Food Industry Minister Vladimir Bolea said that the more efficient use of natural resources was a pressing need. He noted that the economic sectors depended on the health of the soil, which is prompted by the technologies of work.
„Farmers are already aware that each project on the development of agricultural businesses should compulsorily contain the component of environment as well. Otherwise, no project in agriculture has future. Each farmer is already prepared to implement such provisions. In this respect, we are in close connection with the Environment Ministry. We have recently worked out amendments to the Land Code and allowed the creation of woods on farmlands, which I deem as beneficial,’’ the official said.
The conference was organized by the NATI00NS project, in cooperation with the Academy of Sciences of Moldova. Similar events take place in 43 EU countries and associated countries.
