Results-based agri-environment payment schemes to protect mountain grasslands

In the Târnava Mare and Pogányhavas regions, Romania, mountain grasslands’ species are endangered due to the deterioration of habitats. To protect the biodiversity of these mountain areas, the Fundatia ADEPT worked with the Romanian government to test the efficiency of results-based agri-environment payment schemes.

Instead of typical agri-environment schemes – which pays for the implementation of management specific practices- result-based agri-environment schemes pays for the “results”: the presence of certain species as indicators of good quality meadows. In such a way, the role of farmers is less constrained by EU/national prescriptions in how to set appropriate management practices and it rather valorises their expertise, knowledge of the territory and capability to adapt their practices over time.

Find out how ecosystem indicators were assessed and how farmers were involved in the project in our good practice.
