Research projects and biodiversity protection
|The AgriBioDiversity project, started in 2003 in Val d’Agri (Basilicata region) of Italy.|
The main projects are:
- AgriBioDiversity in Val d’Agri (Italy): biodiversity study, impact assessment and mitigation;
- Biodiversity – Mediterranean sea: study of the ecosystemic role of offshore platforms in various marine eco-systems;
- VillanoBioDiversity in Ecuador: survey on the impact of activities in sensitive eco-systems (i.e. rain forests) and identification of mitigation and restoration measures;
- Arctic Biodiversity and BioSea II in Norway: biodiversity study in sensitive eco-systems and eco-systems that have not been much altered by human activities (Arctic Ocean), and stakeholder involvement for the definition of best practice.
The approach utilized in the projects makes it possible to study, in a comprehensive way and right from the start, the area affected by the whole lifecycle of a development project.
