Objectives of the Assignment:
The project aims to reverse the negative trend affecting the conservation status of the heathland habitats due to the abandonment of traditional activities and to ensure their sustainable management in the long term. Protection and conservation of heathland habitat will be achieved by restoring their ecological functionality, mainly through the removal of invasive trees and shrubs, and by fostering the development of the production and marketing of brushes and related products/tools from the heath shrubs.
