Objectives

LIFE Regenerate's main objective is to demonstrate that SME farms of the Mediterranean silvopastoral systems can become self-sufficient and profitable based on resource efficiency principles and incorporating added value products, both at a demonstration and a larger scale.

The project has the following specific objectives:

1. Combat the loss of natural regeneration and soil degradation in 100 ha of degraded silvopastoral areas by providing effective, mosaic landscape management procedures and improving soil quality
2. Recover the practice of multi-species rotational grazing, adapted to improve natural capital and optimize commercial advantages
3. Recycle biomass waste within the farm, reducing external input of fodder and creating alternative sources of income
4. Replicate the project’s best practices to 5,000 ha in Spain, Italy & Portugal, proving it is a representative, effective model
5. Integrate new technologies and monitoring of project advances
6. Influence policy-making and involve external stakeholders to promote replication and long-term sustainability
