BIOSCENE - Sustainability Assessment for Agriculture Scenarios in Europe’s Mountain Areas: Lessons from Six Study Areas

Scenarios for reconciling biodiversity conservation with declining agriculture use in six European Mountain Areas

The aim was to investigate the implications of agricultural restructuring and decline for biodiversity conservation in the mountain areas of Europe, using three distinct methodological streams: the ecological,
the socio-economic, and the Sustainability Assessment approaches. The SA approach assessed the potential sustainability consequences of different European rural and agriculture policy scenarios, looking at how agri-environmental change could affect biodiversity management.

There was certainly an input into the agri-environment and rural policy development in Europe

The scenarios were made in:
