Socio-Economic Impacts of the EU Kerry LIFE Project, Iveragh Peninsula

Socio-Economic Impacts of the EU Kerry LIFE Project, Iveragh Peninsula

Dr Breandan O Caoimh
Irish Uplands Forum

The project presents the recently published results of a socio-economic review of the EU Kerry LIFE project. The Kerry LIFE project was designed to improve water quality in the Caragh River catchment in the Iveragh Peninsula through targeted agri-environmental measures over a period of five years. Consultations with participating farm families demonstrated the positive benefits gained through measures taken by them to enhance water quality and protect the freshwater pearl mussel for future generations.

Video clips prepared by the families highlight their pleasure in seeing the benefits of their work, while the project offers an informed critique to inform the design of future LIFE programmes.
