Socio-economic impact assessment of the Reason for Hope LIFE+ project

We assess the socio-economic impacts of the "Reason for Hope" LIFE+ conservation project supported by the EU that helps to reintroduce the Northern Bald Ibis endangered bird species by involving many stakeholders and addressing relevant threats in Austria, Germany and Italy. The project also addresses key threats such as poaching, electrocution and environmental crime that have additional benefits for other species. Our role is to find out how the targeted stakeholder groups of the project (hunters, nature conservationist, tourism) benefited from the project and how potentially other fields or social-economic aspects have been impacted positively or negatively.  Our analysis will be implemented by surveying hundreds of stakeholders, interviewing experts and collect statistical and communication data. With our research questions, we do not only aim to explore the direct and indirect financial and social benefits and impacts (e.g. increased income, investments, cooperation links), but also to dig further to find information on attitude change and sustainability of the project results.
