Project Summary:
Identify best practice for the long-term conservation of biodiversity in selected farmed landscapes in Uganda and establish a framework for sustainable agricultural development and monitoring.
Project Outputs:
1. Project management systems in place and effective communication across project partners established. 2. Relationships between biodiversity and farming practices are understood and best practices (including novel approaches) identified. 3. Economic importance of on-farm biodiversity and its loss, and economic implications of novel land management approaches are identified and quantified. 4. Capacity enhanced in agricultural biodiversity science, policy and practice 5. Best practices, including novel approaches translated into practical advice for farmers 6. Policy and relevant advice developed within the project is available to all relevant parties and stakeholders 7. System for long term monitoring of agricultural sustainability is established. 8. Integration of biodiversity issues into national policy is created.
