Mountain hay meadows – economic, social and environmental value 23-24 May 2013, Romania

Our partners in Romania, the Pogány-havas Association, have organised a conference on Mountain Haymeadows. European policies put increasing emphasis on improving the economic assessment of the benefits provided by nature to society (ecosystem services), but the methodology of this valuation is not yet fully developed. As such, benefits from nature, and in our case mountain meadows, are not fully reflected in the policies which seek to protect them.
This conference will bring together experts and practitioners in various fields to discuss and improve the valuation, appreciation, conservation and sustainable management of biodiverse hay meadows.
