ECOPAY Connect – Forest-habitat biodiversity payment scheme

Etifor

Italy

This initiative, in the Regional Park Oglio Sud, is increasing the sustainability of poplar plantations in an area under intensive use, by linking social and ecological benefits with economic aspects through the spread of FSC® certification in local farms. In this way, a compliance requirement is transformed into an opportunity to protect nature.

“Ecopay” is expected to have economic, ecological and social impacts. Funding for interventions in the Park will increase, along with income for farmers, while, by the end of the project, there will be more restored and maintained habitats in the Park and more sustainable management of poplar tree farms. Finally, the main social impact expected is the improved quality of life for farmers.
