|The project is partly funded by the Ministry of the Environment and Pohjois-Pohjanmaa ELY-center’s Water protection programme.
The Learn more about ditches -project implements the planning of water protection structures in the Vuolujoki catchment area and develops an operating model for the coordination between habitat restorations and land drainage. The project will draw up a catchment area-specific plan for the new catchment area of Myllyoja, which will be selected using a priority list. In addition, the activities of regional water protection actors networks will be strengthened and water protection associations will be involved in water catchment area planning. The project organises public and field events and webinars as well as workshops. Active communication and increased competence are an important part of the project.
The project aims to:
