Action D2 – Monitoring the socio-economic effects of LIFE project and the effects of activities

Hopefully, the improvement in results that can be achieve through the project depends in large part on its acceptance and “appropriation” by the local community. A careful monitoring of the effects of the black rat eradication is of great interest. Lampedusa is the first Mediterranean island with a significant resident population where this kind of operation is being attempted. This is really important as it allows local commuitiy to gain a correct interpretation of costs incurred, thus allowing to compare the cost of intervention and biosecurity measures in relation to the currents costs caused by the presence of rats (costs for rodent control and prevention damage, damage actually caused by rats). The opportunity to enhance the presence of the Mediterranean Cory’s Shearwater at the end of the project as well as valorisation actions and strategy for dissemination of results to local community will also be estimated. Touristic activities will be both evaluated and regulated in order to protect sites and species. Activities will be carried out by Legambiente.
