You are invited to a seminar on the management of organic soil rich in nutrients

The Ministry of Agriculture invites you to participate in an online seminar on the possibilities of managing nutrient-rich organic soil to mitigate climate change on April 10, 2024 at 10 a.m. on the “MS Teams” platform.

The aim of the seminar is to present the contribution of the LIFE OrgBalt project to the implementation of measures to reduce climate change, promoting the sustainable use of agricultural and forest land. It is also planned to explain the importance of organic soil in the European Union and inform about the prepared legislative initiatives that may affect it. On the other hand, an expert from Germany will provide a practical insight into the implementation of organic soil management measures in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern of the Federal Republic of Germany, whose organic soil conditions for drained agriculture are comparable to Latvia.

With the seminar, we want to promote the discussion about the potential of climate change mitigation measures in Latvia. Therefore, we invite representatives from state administrative institutions, municipalities, regions, non-governmental organizations of farmers and foresters, nature protection and scientific organizations, etc. to participate. We invite you to pass on information about the seminar also for other interested parties.

Pre-registration is mandatory, so please REGISTER FOR THE ONLINE WORKSHOP ON THE APPLICATION FORM.

Registered participants will be sent an MS Teams login link the day before the seminar (April 9).


If you need additional information, please contact the senior expert of the Department of International Affairs of the Ministry of Agriculture, Kristini Purina, by writing an e-mail to [email protected] or by calling 26547332.

The Ministry of Agriculture, together with seven other cooperation partners, is implementing the international project “Demonstration of opportunities to reduce climate change in fertile organic soils in the Baltic States and Finland” – LIFE OrgBalt (LIFE18 CCM/LV/001158). The most important result of the project will be a scientific basis for climate change mitigation methods that can be used for the reduction of GHG emissions by managing fertile organic soil in agricultural and forest land. In addition, national GHG emission factors for fertile organic soil will be developed, a unified GHG accounting system and GHG emission database for the Baltic region countries will be created, as well as guidelines will be developed for thoughtful and climate change mitigation-oriented organic for fire management.
