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.
