The Brenta 2030 Operating Group, in synergy with the LIFE project, aims to reduce conflicts of use and increase the profitability of farms through the enhancement of the water protection service. The project aims to convert current conflicts of use into funding opportunities for farms in the Middle Brenta through the application of approaches related to Payments for Environmental Services.
In doing so, the project mainly responds to the problems of lowering the water table, the conflict between the intensive agricultural use of the territories and the allocation to strategic areas of regional importance for water abstraction and the low economic sustainability of the maintenance of agricultural practices aimed at recharging the water table and improving water quality and ecology.
