PARTRIDGE is a project co-funded by the Interreg North Sea Region Programme which show-cases how new and improved management solutions can improve biodiversity and ecosystem services by up to 30% by 2023 at 10 demonstration sites across the region.
PARTRIDGE (Protecting the Area’s Resources Through Researched Innovative Demonstration of Good Examples), is one of 11 projects which were approved in 2016 by the Interreg North Sea Region. In 2019, the project was awarded an extension until 2023. The programme aims to make the region more innovative, resilient and sustainable.
