The potential of citizen science to support local biodiversity sensitive farming systems: First insights from the FRAMEwork project


Abstract: Unsustainable agriculture is one of the main causes for the global biodiversity crisis, happening locally, and a key frontier for halting biodiversity loss through conservation and promotion of biodiversity sensitive management. The EU H2020 “FRAMEwork” project encourages local farmer and stakeholder groups with a shared interest in improving biodiversity-friendly farming on a landscape scale as well as participation in biodiversity monitoring on their farms together with scientists and local communities. The integration of different citizen science concepts and formats with the farmer cluster approach can maximise their individual strengths and support evidence-based, locally embedded and scalable collaboration towards biodiversity protection and enhancement.
