High nature value Ireland programme

This HNV farmland development project which has been running since 2010, provides seed funding for a number of initiatives including HNV network development, EIP operational groups, uplands and offshore islands work. GMIT’s ARD group is involved in the annual Burren Winterage School (https://www.burrenwinterage.com/) and the Farming For Nature network (https://www.farmingfornature.ie/), which also comes under this work programme. Partners on this research programme include Heritage Council; European Forum on Nature Conservation and Pastoralism; BurrenBeo and other HNV farmland interest groups around Ireland
