These high-biodiversity landscapes have been created by farmers over hundreds of years, and can only be preserved by continued traditional management by the farmers there today.
Saving such areas is of great importance for the public goods and ecosystem services they provide for Europe .... for example, clean air, clean water, flood prevention, pollination, bodiversity and agro-biodiversity ... which are essential for our future.
Fundatia ADEPT has been working since 2002 with farmers, local communities, universities, other NGOs, and government at all levels in order to solve the range of problems threatening the survival of these remarkable landscapes and of the small-scale farming communities living within them.
An innovative approach is required if these landscapes and communities are to survive in the 21st century. Fundatia ADEPT is carrying out an integrated programme linking economic and social benefits with biodiversity conservation, and raising local capacity for good management in the future.
