DISSEMINATION/ COMMUNICATION ACTIONS D3

Creation of an information service for livestock farmers, crop farmers and local operators as well as for the promotion of further conservation initiatives for the site

Partner responsible for the action: Gargano National Park Authority

A specific service called “information office for local farming and dairy farming” will be set up which will have the task of creating and maintaining contact with livestock and crop farmers who are residents of and active in the whole SCI area and its neighbouring areas, as well as with the professional associations. The meetings, which will be aimed at the promotion of activities regarding the conversion to organic farming and more environmentally compatible practices, will also provide an opportunity to promote the project and provide assistance in the definition of projects aimed at joining specific incentive programmes.

From an operational point of view, farmers will be proposed a voluntary agreement (contract) for the application of environmentally compatible measures in farms. The agreement contents will be strictly related to the reduction of negative factors identified in the project proposal.

The action is aimed at the reduction of threats 2,3 and 7 which have negative effects on the project target species. It also aims to reach the objective of changing the current agricultural practices which threaten the integrity of the site and reduce the substantial use of biocides in the site.

Expected results:

An increase in environmentally compatible or lower environmental impact agricultural practices. At least 50 people working in the SCI and neighbouring areas will be contacted.
