Food and agriculture restoration management involving networked groups

Objective

UK experience has shown that stakeholder involvement is essential in formulation of strategies for restoring contaminated rural areas. Whilst opinion of individual stakeholders is useful, the most cost-effective method for obtaining a general consensus on practicable strategies derives from setting up and networking of national stakeholder groups. This will be carried out in 5 Member States initially. The stakeholder groups, comprising those individuals involved in making policy decisions, will meet annually to debate and judge the practicability of a range of management options. Opinion will be exchanged with other national groups via the network, and reconsidered in an iterative process. The principal findings will be disseminated through web-site articles. A workshop will be held in the final year of the project to present the state-of-the-art on restoration strategies and promote future expansion of the stakeholder network in Europe.
