A. REAP is a pilot project (and not a full Scheme), and similar to other EIP projects, it has a relatively narrow focus regarding its objectives. The scorecard in REAP has been developed to assess the sustainability of agricultural grasslands but is not designed to assess other habitat types such as those typically found on commonages nor fields containing heather. Thus, these field types are not suitable for this particular pilot project”. It should also be noted that several other EIP projects are testing measures/scorecards on these types of land and thus it is also important to avoid duplicating the work of these other projects. For example EIPs such the Hen Harrier Project, Pearl Mussel Project, the North Connemara Locally Led Agri-environmental Scheme, A Sustainable Agricultural Plan for the MacGillycuddy Reeks, Sustainable Uplands Agri-environment Scheme SUAS, Inishowen Upland Farmers Project as well as the Blackstairs Farming Futures (BFF) Sustainable farming project.
