Bayesian Belief Network (BBN) starts from a diagrammatic representation of the system that is being studied, developed by pulling together the knowledge of scientists and practitioners (both are stakeholders) about the processes leading to the supply and demand of ES. As a knowledge representation
This report gives guidance for seeking information that supports the integration of ecosystem services into policy and public management. We present for each ecosystem service a succinct selection of literature and further sources, which describe example indicators for approximating its (bio-
The concepts of Ecosystem Services (ES) and Natural Capital (NC) hold a powerful potential to support more sustainable development, improve ecosystem restoration and conservation, provide nature-based solutions and improve the wellbeing of people. Harnessing this potential in support of policy
Based on a better understanding of terrestrial and freshwater biodiversity and ecosystem functioning ALARM will develop and test methods and protocols for the assessment of large-scale environmental risks in order to minimise negative direct and indirect human impacts.
This report provides the summary of findings by the EKLIPSE ‘Expert Working Group analysing the links between the IPBES Global Assessment (GA) and its Summary for Policymakers (SPM). The Expert Working Group (EWG) was established based on a request by the European Commission, DG Environment, and
Mapping to support REDD+ planning and secure multiple benefits: toolbox and tutorials for QGIS and ArcGIS
GIS training materials and tools have been developed for use in planning REDD+ activities that deliver multiple benefits. These resources are designed to assist technical staff to undertake spatial analysis to identify areas suitable for specific REDD+ policies and measures, and which are likely to
A report comprising reviews of core and recommended evaluation indicators for evaluating the benefits, co-benefits, and trade-offs associated with nature-based solution indicators. Review comprises those indicators selected within the Connecting Nature WP1 indicators scoping coproduction exercise
The policy brief “Adaptation of trees and forests to climate change: the importance of genetic variability” is derived from the BiodivERsA-funded LinkTree project, which examined the genetic variation within forest tree populations in five European countries, and assessed how this variability and
Considering the overall goals of the OpenNESS project and its variety of case studies, it is important to have a clear idea about how the concept of green infrastructure can be operationalised in practice, despite its inherent conceptual complexity and ambiguity. The concept of Green Infrastructure
To meet the growing demand for subject-specific and relevant GIS training courses Westcountry Rivers Trust have developed a series of intensive GIS short-courses specifically tailored to develop and disseminate best practice and technical GIS skills in the use of GIS, in practitioners engaged in
Toolkit to identify and reform incentives harmful to biodiversity, by S. Withana, P. ten Brink, A. Illes, E. Watkins, D. Russi or The Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP). This toolkit aims to be an operational guide to identify which incentives harmful to the biodiversity merit
Revealed preference for Cultural Ecosystem Services (CES) and spatially-explicit data on location for nearby CES provision can be obtained from popular social networks. Photoseries databases can be acquired from photo-sharing websites such as Flickr, Panoramio and Instagram. The analysis of
This case study analysis describes experiences on the ground with ecosystem service assessments and the way they are used in decision making processes. The overall aim was to better understand the role of such assessments and to distil lessons in relation to their effectiveness in supporting policy
The Biodiversity Planning Toolkit is a new versatile online resource - aimed at helping users to incorporate biodiversity into the planning system and new development. The Toolkit has been created by the Association of Local Government Ecologists (ALGE) in partnership with a wide range of
Mapping Green Infrastructure based on ecosystem services and ecological networks: A Pan-European case study
A methodology that can be used to identify and map GI elements at landscape level based on the notions of ecological connectivity, multi-functionality of ecosystems and maximisation of benefits both for humans and for natural conservation.
Understanding how changes in ecosystem services (ES) and natural capital (NC) impact on issues related to competitiveness and social justice.
