LIFE VinEcoS helped optimise ecosystem services in vineyards through the testing of climate-adapted methods in viticulture. To achieve cost efficient solutions, the project team created and utilised synergies between climate adaptation and nature conservation. The project’s methods were implemented in demonstration areas and their suitability analysed in terms of climate adaptation and agricultural yields (quality and quantity). The results of the project were actively communicated to stakeholders, and are applicable to wine growing regions across Europe.
The LIFE VinEcoS project, boosting biodiversity on vineyards in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany, to make them more climate-resilient, won the 2022 LIFE Award for Climate Action.
