On the 9th of November 2022 LIFE ENPLC implemented a workshop on tools for private land conservation alongside Terra Cypria in Larnaka (Cyprus). The workshop aimed at analysing the suitability of land stewardship tools for the protection of wetlands participants visited during the stay in Cyprus. The wetlands in Cyprus face several challenges such as anthropic pressure, climate change and high land fragmentation which makes its governance difficult. 20 participants worked together in groups to identify the most suitable conservation tool.
Results of the workshop indicated that the local complexity requires the combination of several tools and strategies to face current challenges. It proved difficult to fit within one workshop solutions for real life problems which have been in place for decades. Follow up activities on the tools are required to further evaluate their suitability.
