Work with local farmers to reintroduce a local endemic clover Trifolium tunetanum in traditional agropastoral practices, with the objective of maintaining populations in the long term. Sign conservation agreements with local farmers to ensure that biodiversity-friendly practices are integrated into their land management, including agroforestry, hedges, meslin with local endemics and measures to ensure connectivity of habitats.

Strategic Direction: 3 Promote the maintenance of traditional land-use practices necessary for the conservation of Mediterranean biodiversity in priority corridors of high cultural and biodiversity value
