10 December, 2021 | Regional Workshop in Ávila, Spain

The regional workshop of the EU Large Carnivore Platform on Coexistence between people and large carnivores: Presentation regional platform agreed actions was organised by the Ávila platform on large carnivores in collaboration with the EU Platform, the Ávila regional platform and the Asociación Raza Avileña. It took place on 10 December and was hosted by the EU Platform in the Lienzo Norte Congress Centre in Ávila.

The Ávila Platform was established in 2019. After engaging in a facilitated, participative process demonstrating the differences and similarities of stakeholders' viewpoints, the members have succeeded in agreeing a range of joint actions. These consist of a series of measures to better compensate and support livestock farmers suffering from wolf damages as well as to test the applicability of damage prevention measures in extensive cattle farming.

The purpose of this meeting, was to highlight the actions agreed to, to local, regional, national and European decision-makers and stakeholders. The meeting was carried out with strict social distancing rules during the COVID pandemic. This unfortunately meant that fewer international participants could be present. The meeting was therefore held in Spanish and some participants presented online.

The workshop agenda is available here. The workshop report giving details of the meeting can be accessed here(also available in ES.
