Available accommodation in every implementation area was searched, selecting the most suitable place according to location, available facilities and the value for money. Meetings were held in order to get as competitive prices as possible. The project’s corporate image was designed, implemented and outlined in an implementation manual.

The preliminary conservation plans proposal was discussed with the managers of the demonstration olive groves, so that all planned interventions were explained. Over this consultation period, the suitability of the planned actions regarding any possible interference with the agricultural activities was assessed. Olive growers were also asked their opinion regarding which actions they considered to be most interestinga priori. Additionally, landowners provided information on the use of buildings and irrigation ponds. Depending on their use, they might or might not have been appropriate for the implementation of conservation actions.
AMP Laboratorios serves the food business sector in controlling and improving the quality of their products, making them more competitive in the market. Halal Tourism figures also attracted the attention of the Algerian delegates, as Cordoba attracts ca. The potential demand for halal products and services is not yet met by the expected Consultor SEO Córdoba offer. Specific halal products (such as food, beverages, cosmetics, delicatessen, etc.) and services (lodging, banking, entertainment, etc.) are increasingly demanded worldwide. The sector is a strategic one for the economic development of the city and Spain is one of the top destinations for Muslim tourists from all over the world. A contingency plan has been drawn up according to the evolution of the impact that the guarantee brand has on the market and the results of the market research. The plan comprises a list of possible issues that may affect the post-LIFE sustainability of the model, as well as response strategies. Specifically, this action comprised the graphic design of the brand and the selection of the symbol and/or logo. In addition, the most appropriate contents have been analysed and selected, in order to convey the message that Olivares Vivos evokes. Discontinuous revegetation has been done in some incipient gullies that go across the productive areas of the olive groves. This way, they fulfill their dual role as elements that enhance biodiversity and control erosion.
To that purpose, the process of recovery, revaluation and dissemination of their cultural heritage will be carried out through a bottom-up and participatory process. On the other hand, questionnaires were sent to evaluate whether the olive sector is receptive to change in their production model, which is the main goal of this project. These questionnaires were carried out at the beginning of the project and at the end of the project in order to determine whether the implementation and dissemination of the Olivares Vivos project is promoting a relevant change in their receptiveness. Different communication activities have been carried out, selecting the best tools. In a first stage, information on the project, its objectives and the problems targeted has been prepared and disseminated. Next, communication has focused on conveying what is being done both to stakeholders and the general public. Given this interest, in February 2019 an information day was held at the Technological Park Geolit, and interested olive growers were invited. The 50 farmers who attended this event received information about the project progress and were given the opportunity to raise their questions. Finally, different activities for the general public have been planned to celebrate the European Natura 2000 Day or the Bird Day.
The analysis of the data recorded in the post-operational survey, as well as the compilation of the data for the assessment of the project’s impact on the ecosystem functions, are currently being carried out. Bibliography is being compiled, and data are being recorded and processed in order to assess the socio-economic impact that the project is having on olive-growing villages and towns. The general volunteer work programme was finished in December 2016. Subsequently, the first call for volunteering was launched through the project’s website, the SEO/BirdLife webpage and social networks . Eleven different work camps were organised to take place between October 2016 and February 2017, with a total of 72 vacancies. The call was a complete success and all the vacancies were filled. The members of NMS were invited to join Olivares Vivos Municipalities Network . Later on, in a second phase, the rest of the olive-growing municipalities of Andalusia were invited to join this Network. Promotion of the tourist potential of olive groves, focusing on the discovery of their culture and biodiversity. During the first stage, the sources of knowledge on olive growing culture involving traditional uses were identified.
This action contributes to the general objective of introducing diversifying elements that enhance biodiversity in olive groves, but it also contributes to reducing diffuse erosion. Sowing native herbaceous species in the productive area of olive groves. The grass cover is enriched with groups of species that provide different ecological functions according to shortages observed in each olive grove, i.e. species used to retain soil, attract pollinators, for pest control, species of interest for birds, etc. The main adjustments made following these enquiries concerned some of the initial proposals for the dirt roads inside the olive groves, as they interfered with machinery and with harvesting works. In such cases, all actions planned were changed or adjusted in order to avoid those issues. Likewise, 34,000 m2 of barley have been planted among olive groves. Altogether, the 20 demonstration olive groves consisting of 3,604 ha in total. During the brief stopover in Athens on the journey back to Spain, a meeting was held with representatives of the Hellenic Ornithological Society . The meeting discussed the content and development of Olivares Vivos, and a framework of collaboration was established for the dissemination of results in Greece, as well as for the future replication of the project. The project is testing efficient techniques for the use of irrigation water in woody crops, specifically in olive groves, citrus and peach crops, as a tool for adaptation to climate change.
