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 ?

Strengthening the rights of pregnant self-employed workers

Pregnant employees can apply for dispensation from work before their maternity leave, for example if they are unable to work for health reasons. The self-employed do not have this option, which can have a negative impact on the recalculation of their maternity benefits.
DP MPs Carole Hartmann and Mandy Minella have asked the relevant ministers whether paid dispensation from work or an equivalent mechanism will be introduced for pregnant self-employed workers.

Is a pharmacy coming to Bettendorf?

Has the Minister of Health possibly already been contacted by the municipality of Bettendorf and could other municipalities get a new pharmacy?

Introduction of skin cancer screening?

Since 2008, skin cancer screening has been available in Germany for all policyholders aged 35 and over. As a result, many cases of skin cancer are detected earlier.
DP MPs André Bauler and Gilles Baum wanted to know from the Minister for Health how skin cancer figures have developed here in the country since 2013, whether such screening would also be useful in Luxembourg and why only figures for melanoma (black skin cancer) are collected.
