Institute profile:

The Observatory is a non-profit organization promoted by the University of Basilicata and the National Association of Mountain Territory, aiming to promote activity on sustainable development and management of Mediterranean areas highly exposed to desertification. It was founded with aims that included promoting research on principles and methods for the practical implementation of the concept of "sustainable rural development" to develop training programmes that translate research results into practical instruments for sustainable land use planning and farm management; to make information from research available in a comprehensive and understandable manner to the planner and decision-maker; and to give advice on the practical application of the principles of and tools for sustainable development. The Observatory has a strong background in agricultural economics and policy; social sciences, and natural resources management.
