ID LIFE08 NAT/IT/000342
Acronym DEMETRA
Project acronym and title LIFE DEMETRA - DEvelopment of a quick Monitoring index DEvelopment of a quick Monitoring index as a tool to assess Environmental impactsof TRAnsgenic crops
Contract LIFE08 NAT/IT/000342
Description A project funded by the LIFE programme with the aim of defining an innovative methodology for the assessment of risks linked with the presence of transgenic crops. The main goal is the definition of a quick monitoring index which supports decision-makers to identify the areas where to position the environmental monitoring network at local level. Project activities do not foresee the use of transgenic organisms. The project is based on a detailed analysis of the ecosystems and environmental resources present in the study area. This analysis is the starting point for the development of a risk matrix, which is linked to the use of specific Genetically Modified Organisms and is based on peer reviewed data and on ecological and biological collected parameters. https://www.youtube.com/watch v=1w9SiD6zD0g
