Project: Farmer clusters for Realising Agrobiodiversity Management across Ecosystems (FRAMEwork, H2020 862731)


Agriculture is a key frontier for ensuring planetary health and conserving and promoting biodiversity. The EU project “FRAMEwork” (2020-2024) is helping farmer groups, so-called ‘farmer clusters’, with a shared interest in monitoring biodiversity on their farms in partnership with researchers and local communities as well as implementing more biodiversity-friendly farming at a landscape scale. In eleven active farmer clusters from Spain to Estonia, the project is combining two concepts, stemming from different practice domains: Farmer Clusters and Citizen Observatories. The combination of the two concepts aims to maximise the strengths of both and create a strong, evidence-based, locally embedded community approach to biodiversity protection and enhancement by enabling the integration of structured monitoring with adaptive land management practices. In this poster, we present a summary of the approach including different pathways to link farmer-led innovation via farmer clusters at a landscape scale with the Citizen Observatory concept as well as some intermediary results of the project.
