ILCN/ELCN webinar: Resifarms — Boosting ecosystem services on non-productive farm land

Farmland represents 40% of EU land. Agriculture can sustain high levels of biodiversity and be highly productive, but if managed too aggressively it can pollute and degrade the environment. There is a well-known synergy between agricultural production and semi-natural habitat conservation (ponds, forests, etc.) but it is still scarcely applied. The Resifarms project is preparing a toolkit and training sessions for farmers and technicians of Spain, France, Italy, Czech Republic and Romania to build up their skills.

Information about the benefits of conserving semi-natural habitats for farming and its productivity, and the great importance of conserving these areas for nature, health and society is vaguely known by farmers and agriculture technicians, but they often lack the know-how and the tools to implement such conservation actions.

In this context, the project Resifarms aims at building the capacity of farmers and agricultural technicians in the conservation of semi-natural habitats, in order to promote the implementation of the most direct and effective conservation actions. More information on the project is available here.
