SHOWCASing synergies between agriculture, biodiversity and Ecosystem services to help farmers capitalising on native biodiversity

Project description

Incentives for implementing biodiversity management in farming

Little is known about what effectively motivates farmers to integrate biodiversity into daily farm management. In addition, there are only a few studies showing that biodiversity-based approaches produce benefits and this evidence is poorly communicated. The EU-funded SHOWCASE project aims to shed light on these issues by reviewing and testing the ecological effectiveness of a range of economic and societal incentives to implement biodiversity management in farming operations and examine farmer and public acceptance. The project is focusing on result-based incentives, involvement in citizen science biodiversity monitoring and biodiversity-based business models. Moreover, it will design communication strategies that are tailor-made for farmers and other key stakeholders operating in different socio-economic and environmental conditions.
