Transhumance plays a key role in maintaining biodiversity in mountain ecosystems throughout Europe. However social and economic changes are the driving forces for the decline in transhumance, which in turn has important implications for the sustainability of mountain ecosystems and threatens biodiversity. There is scattered knowledge at regional level, but no general overview. The first step in assessing the changing role of transhumance is to review its state in Europe. The proposal aims to bring the expert knowledge together, to identify links between transhumance and management of Priority Habitats, to identify gaps in the knowledge, and to present recommendations for policy stakeholders. This Accompanying Measure is built around a Review Conference and a Policy Workshop. The results will be published for the scientific world, and the policy and management stakeholders.
