Results-oriented Management (EBW)




In the CAP-intervention "Results-oriented management", precise goals are defined instead of funding requirements, as well as associated measurable and comprehensible indicators for the protected asset biodiversity. In a first step, the current condition of the participating area(s) is determined and documented during a farm visit. Based on this, targets, indicators and additional indicators are defined. The indicators serve to meet the objectives and are chosen in such a way that there is a causal link to management.
