Agriculture provides a variety of services that are relevant to tourism ranging from direct agro-tourism services and agricultural products to the preservation of an attractive cultural landscape. The IG Landwirtschaft Klosters-Serneus is committed to improving cooperation between agriculture, tourism and commercial enterprises. The aim is to promote the marketing and added value of regional products. However, its tasks also include the representation of agricultural interests towards local authorities ( municipality). The bylaws can be downloaded here.

Regional Development Projects (PRE = Projekte zur Regionalen Entwicklung) aim at creating added value in agriculture in a sustainable manner and promoting cross-sectoral cooperation between agriculture and its related sectors. The IG Landwirtschaft Klosters-Serneus is the supporting organisation of the PRE Klosters-Serneus. Thanks to the PRE, it was possible to modernise the meat processing facilities (new construction of the Klosters Davos Meat Centre) and establish the Gadäwäg theme path (path renovation and staging of stables). The PRE also supported the establishment of the IG Landwirtschaft trade union. The investments of around 5.3 million (between 2014 and 2020) required for the implementation of the PRE were financed primarily with contributions from the federal government (around 1.5 million), the canton (around 1.2 million) and the municipalities (around 1.4 million).
