Context: 

An overview of agro-pastoralism was carried out via the national rural network in France and we wish to widen the work to share proposals with other member states of Europe.

Project idea summary: 

The aim of the AgroPastoM project is "to collectively innovate to better support agropastoralism as a territorialized economy in the mountains".
We have three main objectives: Mobilize actors on the ground to raise their needs, Strengthen synergies between mountain agriculture and pastoralism, for a shared knowledge of pastoral issues, Improve the effectiveness of the support (in particular the RRDPs: Regional Rural Development Program) for agro-pastoralism, identify innovations in terms of public action and reproducible experiments.
We are interested in three main themes: The means of functioning of pastoralism, the public policies that support the pastoral farms and their groups, and the economy generated by the pastoral sectors.
