Expected Results

 

 
 

The expected results on a national level are the establishment and the communication of a knowledge base on:

  • The plant communities and Juniperus population composition and structure,
  • The effect of anthropogenic threats on the habitat’s ecological conditions,
  • Effective participation and governance methods for habitat conservation,
  • Effective monitoring and conservation methods through the elaboration of habitat protection and restoration guidelines and monitoring protocols,

The improved conservation status of the habitats and halt of the threats that it faces will be achieved through a series of actions which will result in the following:

  • Update of the Standard Data forms (SDFs), mapping, demarcation and protection of the habitats in Cyprus 
  • Enhanced regeneration of the Juniperus species,
  • In situ and ex situ conservation of Juniperus and habitat keystone species,
  • Minimization of threats and negative impacts on all habitats,

Additionally, the long term sustainability of the project results will be ensured through the creation of European and National networks, as well as after LIFE conservation and communication plans.
