Regional Platforms on coexistence between people and large carnivores
Conflicts on large carnivores vary significantly across the EU, depending for example, on the socio-economic activities in the areas which large carnivores are returning to and the biogeographic and natural conditions.
The project ‘Regional Platforms on coexistence between people and large carnivores’ aims to work together with stakeholders to discuss potential solutions for conflicts around large carnivores in the national, regional or local context. The project is managed by Instituto di Ecologia Applicata (IAE) and supported by a team including facilitators, social scientists and communicators. The team's goal is not to propose particular solutions but to support the parties affected in discussing the problems and potential solutions together. ELO, as co-chair of the European Large Carnivores Platform, links this project and the regional platform to the European Large Carnivores Platform. Platforms are currently being scoped in Castilla y Léon (Spain), Harghita county (Romania), Grosseto, Tuscany (Italy), and Trentino (Italy).
