Result-oriented Measures for Biodiversity in Mountain Farming. A Policy Handbook

Abstract : This handbook is based on the results, reports, deliverables and user fora of a project entitled ‘Merit based income from sustainable land management in mountain farming’ (MERIT). This research was carried out under the RURAGRI programme ; an ERA-NET supported by the European Commission and national governmental funding bodies under the 7th EU Framework research Programme (FP 7, CA 235175). This handbook is targeted at policy makers from governmental bodies, public authorities, farmers’ associations as well as other private or public organizations involved and interested in the development and implementation of agri-environmental policies. It provides information about the implementation of result-oriented agri-environmental measures, a relatively new approach of preserving, enhancing and supporting biodiversity on agricultural areas: here, in the context of meadows and pastures and other habitats and landscape elements in mountain regions in Europe. The handbook provides policy recommendations for the effective design, implementation and governance of such measures that can be adopted by public bodies (governments, other responsible administrative bodies) as well as private organisations (NGOs or food chain managers).
