BEE-DIVERSITY

Biodiversity improvement through innovative ecosystem management and bee monitoring
Priority Axis 3

Protecting and promoting natural and cultural resources

Specific Objective: 
OS 3.2.
Investment Priority: 
PI 6d
Typology: 
Standard
Overall Objective of the Project: 

Bee-diversity creates an innovative cross-border system for the improvement and monitoring of biodiversity in co-financed habitats, which allows sustainable and integrated management of ecosystems. This system will be structured in protocols and in a joint model transferable to Europe. The project integrates for the first time the monitoring on the health of the areas through pollinators to a process of collection, sowing and diffusion of native herbaceous plants.

Project summary: 

Bee-diversity creates an innovative cross-border system for improvement and monitoring of biodiversity in co-financed habitats, which allows sustainable and integrated management of ecosystems. This system will be implemented in 10 case studies for a total of 8000 hectares spread between Italy and Slovenia, structuring protocols and a joint model transferable to Europe even after project conclusion. Bee-diversity integrates, for the first time, the monitoring of the health status of the areas with a process of collection, sowing and diffusion of native herbaceous plants. Monitoring is done through pollinators (API) and through an innovative ICT system and an APP for the collection, management and aggregation of data, . The task is performed in Natura 2000 areas with the direct collaboration of owners, management companies and stakeholders (farmers, beekeepers, technicians, etc.). The APP shall allow communication both of technical information to professionals and for geberal public awareness-raising. In addition, Bee-diversity provides training and awareness-raising actions for companies, stakeholders and technicians in order to disseminate the application of the created protocols.

Main results: 

The main expected result is to create protocols and a system for innovative management and improvement of biodiversity. The development of a model for integrated ecosystem management is pursued through protocols and action plans for the sustainable management of biodiversity in stable meadows, procedures for collection and dissemination of native spontaneous herbaceous plants seeds, as well as through  collection of good practices on biodiversity conservation and enhancement. The aim is to allow beekeepers, farmers and stakeholders to develop environmentally and economically sustainable methods. This system will be implemented in 10 case studies for a total of 8000 hectares between Italy and Slovenia and a joint model shall be transferable elsewhere in Europe even after the formal project conclusion. Bee-diversity promotes an innovative system of connection of hives through an ICT software to monitor environmental quality and biodiversity through bees. Bees have a fundamental role in the conservation of the so-called spontaneous flora. An innovative ICT system and an APP will be created for collection, management and aggregation of data, altogether with collection, sowing and dissemination of native herbaceous plants. In addition, BEE-DIVERSITY works in Natura 2000 areas with the direct collaboration of owners, management companies and stakeholders (farmers, beekeepers, technicians, etc ..) and through the APP the project will communicate to technicians and to promote awreness raising to general public. The project will encourage the restoration of local plant biodiversity and its correct management by ensuring better protection of ecosystem services located in areas with a naturalistic-environmental value.
