Agroforestry: a solution to better resist climate change?

Global warming and increasingly frequent droughts have negative consequences for Luxembourg's agricultural land. Agroforestry could be a solution to protect our soils against drought. In this context, DP-MP André Bauler asked the Minister of Agriculture for more information on Agroforestry.

Déi lescht waarm Summeren haten en negativen Impakt op d’Produktivitéit vun eiser Landwirtschaft. Duerch de Klimawandel riskéiere mer, dass et ëmmer méi oft zu Drécheperiode kënnt, wouduerch och den Ertrag op de Felder erofgeet.

Eng Méiglechkeet fir d’Situatioun ze verbessere kéint de System vun der Agroforstwirtschaft sinn. Forst- a Landwirtschaft ginn heibäi matenee kombinéiert. Beem an Akerkulturen, Wisen oder Weede ginn an engem Gebitt sou kombinéiert, datt et gläich gutt fir d’Landwirtschaft, d’Natur an de Klima ass.

Felder iwwersti länger Dréchente besser, well de Mikroklima um Feld ënner dem Schutz vun de Beem verbessert gëtt a manner Waasser verdonst. Aner Virdeeler vum Agroforstsystem sinn de Schutz vum Buedem virun Erosioun, de Schutz vum Grondwaasser a vun der lokaler Biodiversitéit.

An deem Kader wollt ech dem Här Minister fir Landwirtschaft, Wäibau a ländlech Entwécklung folgend Froe stellen:

  • Gëtt et hei zu Lëtzebuerg e Programm fir dës Bewirtschaftungsform ze fërderen ?
  • Wa jo, wou lafe sou Programmer a wéivill Hektar si betraff ?
  • Wat fir Beem ginn haaptsächlech ugeplanzt fir d’Wise wärend enger Dréchent ze schützen ?
  • Soll d’Agroforstwirtschaft am Kader vum nächsten Agrargesetz finanziell ënnerstëtzt ginn ?

What is the current situation in Myanmar?

Following the military coup in February this year, the army continues to advance with increasing force against the protesters in Myanmar. A political crisis has turned into a human rights catastrophe. Even communications are now being monitored and intercepted on. In the French Senate and in the General Assembly, resolutions have called for recognition of the November election results and to end the violence that is currently taking place. What has happened so far, after the EU Member States have clearly stated their opposition to the coup in Myanmar? What help did the sanctions bring? And how is this going to continue? Our MP Gusty Graas inquired at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
