More and more people are becoming aware of the pressing need to halt dramatic losses in biodiversity worldwide.
We're creating a
Biodiversity Sensitive Farming System to encourage and enable farmers to conserve biodiversity and
improve nutritional security in the face of climate change & disease pandemics.
In Europe, agriculture accounts for about 40% of land use - conserving farmland biodiversity is vital.
Loss of biodiversity is a local and global tragedy but there is also an urgent need for agriculture to feed a growing global population. Biodiversity helps deliver
productive agroecosystems and
affordable, nutritious, food.
Advance ecological understanding of the drivers of biodiversity change in agricultural landscapes
Generate, with farmers, a selection of best-practice biodiversity-sensitive management techniques based on their local requirement
Output validated methods for biodiversity targeting, monitoring and evaluation
Create private and public incentives to foster biodiversity-sensitive farming as a public good
