On Wednesday, Grand Duke Henri attended a selection of workshops focused on the protection of water resources in Luxembourg. Each presentation demonstrated the different methods that farmers and others in the agricultural industry are using to make the most of current water resources and reduce pollution. At the end of the visit, Grand Duke Henri toured a farm.
Also in attendance was Fernand Etgen, the Minister of Agriculture, Viticulture and Consumer Protection in Luxembourg. The workshop presentations included members of the Chamber of Agriculture, the Parc Naturel de la Haute-Sûre (Naturpark Uewersauer), the Syndicat des Eaux du Barrage d'Esch-sur-Sûre (SEBES), and the Administration des services techniques de l'agriculture (ASTA). Additionally, students from the Lycée Technique Agricole in Ettelbruck explained how water resources protection is currently a part of their educational program.
