Conservation of pollinator diversity for enhanced climate change resilience

As of: April 2018

Objective and activities

The project protects in 7 countries pollinator diversity directly, by diversified capacity development, political mainstreaming and a global stewardship. It introduces and mainstreams TEEB-based, economically self-supporting "Farming with Alternative Pollinators"(FAP). FAP identifies the economic value of habitat enhancement for farmers and uses the additional incomes as incentives for farmers and policymakers to mainstream pollinator protection across sectors. The project develops the first pollinator inventory for the West Asia and North Africa-region (WANA). Morocco is the benchmark country (development of manuals, DVD, assessment to describe the value of pollination, broad outscaling, political mainstreaming etc.). Partners from the six participating countries will be trained and will conduct small supervised FAP trials in their countries to promote mainstreaming of pollinator protection by policy workshops in these countries.
