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 ?

New pharmacies for the North?

An investigation by the Competition Council into the pharmaceutical sector shows that Luxembourg has a low number of pharmacies compared to the OECD. The Council is therefore proposing the creation of new pharmacies to fill the geographical gaps. DP MP André Bauler asked the Minister of Health whether there are already considerations to create new pharmacies in the north of the country and which criteria are decisive for the creation of new pharmacies.

Why are prisoners of the Uerschterhaff not allowed to work?

In contrast to the sentenced prisoners in Schrassig, prisoners of the Uerschterhaff are not allowed to work. This is despite the fact that pre-trial detention can last anywhere from a few days to a few years. Why is there a difference in treatment, and will anything change in this regard? Our MP Pim Knaff asked the responsible ministry for more information.

Is there a shortage of the drug Ozempic?

The drug Ozempic is used to treat type 2 diabetes. However, it also helps people lose weight and is increasingly being bought for this purpose as well. Since there is already talk of a shortage of this diabetes drug in many countries, DP MPs André Bauler and Gilles Baum asked the responsible ministers what the drug is mainly used for in this country, whether there could also be a shortage here, and whether doctors and pharmacists should be advised to dispense Ozempic only for type 2 diabetes.
