We won a tender for an EU expert study with the object of providing an overview on EU best practices on innovative agri-environmental measures. This tender is organized within the framework of the project “Optimizing the management of Natura2000 network in Lithuania”. It is financed by the Republic of Lithuania and the EU@LIFE Programme, which is the EU’s funding instrument for the environment and climate action. We will review and analyze best practice experiences of agri-environmental measures with respect to biodiversity conservation from other EU Member States. Subsequently we will draft recommendations for the agricultural sector to improve biodiversity conservation in Lithuania. For this project we will closely cooperate with the Baltic Environmental Forum. We are looking forward to innovative findings as well as outcome-driven recommendations.
