The project studies coastal grazing comprehensively from multiple perspectives to increase knowledge of the impact of grazing on coastal areas’ biodiversity, state of water, recreational use and trade. In addition, the project will improve farmers’ and advisors’ knowledge of factors affecting the profitability of coastal grazing.
Farmers will be encouraged to manage traditional rural biotopes, and the effectiveness of management will be increased, by developing agreement practices and enhancing advisory services. The project will contribute to making coastal grazing more sustainable, effective and valued.
The project consists of four work packages, in which the effects of coastal grazing are comprehensively studied and the implementation of coastal grazing is developed to make it more sustainable. The work packages can be viewed in more detail through the links on the left.
