Event description

Description

Results-based schemes are a farmer-centered approach to farming and conservation, which sees farmers paid for both work undertaken and, most importantly, for the quality of delivery of the environmental results.

Over the course of 3.5 years, the Results-based Agri-environmental Payment Scheme (RBAPS) project trialled a mode of paying farmers for the quality of biodiversity on their farms in three differing pilot locations of County Leitrim and the Shannon Callow floodplain in Ireland, and the Navarra region of Spain.

This seminar presents the experiences and findings of the RBAPS project, and will explore how payments for the quality of farmland biodiversity can work in reality, with a particular focus on grasslands. The project teams will summarise how scoring assessments can be developed for such schemes and what supports are needed to ensure this type of approach can be successful.

This event is aimed at anyone interested in the future of agri-environment schemes, particularly farmers, farming authorities, farm advisors, administrators and those interested in European Innovation Partnerships, particularly with a biodiversity focus.
