Pillars of the project

Farmers

Advanced Farmer Clusters – local farmer groups working as a collective to deliver landscape scale management, supported by a Cluster Facilitator with expertise in agriculture and the environment, and linked to a local Cluster Stakeholder Group

Communities

A Citizen Observatory will support farmers with monitoring through citizen science initiatives. An info hub will also share activities, information, data and resources between farmers, scientists, policy makers, and citizens.

Policy & Practice

Specialists will provide technical information, methods, and tools to support agrobiodiversity monitoring, management and policy. Cluster Stakeholder Groups will inform and promote policy and practice, organised into regional, national, and international networks.

Science & Innovation

Researchers regionally, national & internationally will provide knowledge on the ecology, sociology and economics that underpins the functioning of sustainable agricultural systems.
