Quantifiable Biodiversity Targets for Tyrol

What is at issue?

Due to increasingly tight budgets, it is becoming more important to align agricultural subsidies with measurable biodiversity targets and corresponding priorities. At the same time, the population demands efficient use of public funds.

What is the benefit?

Quantified targets for species or habitats in Tyrol lead to a more efficient use of funds as well as to more transparency for the taxpayer. The results of this study are, above all, meant to support the prioritisation of certain activities (e.g. the nature conservation measures of the Austrian Agri-Environmental Programme ÖPUL).

The results of the study also facilitate the evaluation of horizontally effective, “broadly” deployed public funds, such as under the single payment scheme, subsidies for organic farming, or the ÖPUL measure “Environmentally friendly and biodiversity-promoting management.”

What do we do?

We develop quantified targets for eligible species with an urgent need for protection and  whose conservation status can be readily influenced by rural development measures.

The project was completed successfully in 2016.
