Socio-environmental conflicts arise from differences in interests, values, or visions regarding environmental and territorial issues and the impacts they generate on society. These conflicts often involve different individuals, groups, sectors, and entities such as local communities, businesses, governments and administrations, non-governmental organizations, the primary sector, and typically have a significant impact on people's lives and their natural surroundings.

Any human activity in a given territory implies certain interactions with wildlife. Many times, these interactions turn into socio-environmental conflicts, as is the case, for example, with species like wolves or bears that may prey on livestock, and with other species that can affect different economic activities or ways of life.

This project starts from the premise that solutions to environmental problems should aim to be addressed through initiatives that take into account the people who are and/or feel involved or affected. Conservation of biodiversity involves addressing coexistence models that consider all perspectives and interests.

In order to support projects that promote solutions facilitating coexistence between wildlife and people, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation drives and funds this call, which was launched in France several years ago, with the intention to be replicated in Spain. The goal is to collaborate economically in projects that demonstrate this coexistence is possible.

Thus, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, with the support and collaboration of the Observatorio Grupo Campo Grande, promotes the development of this call that aims to contribute to finding dialogue-based solutions to this socio-environmental conflict.
