The BIOGEA project is supported by three National Research Funding Agencies (National Science Fund, Bulgaria; Federal Ministry of Education and Research, Germany; and National Research Agency at the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness of Spain) and co-funded by the European Commission within the BiodivERsA ERA-NET Co-Fund scheme. The BIOGEA project researches the impact of land use change on Green Blue Infrastructure (GBI) in the agricultural landscape. Through policy analysis on the EU and national level and biological monitoring and modelling in six case study areas in 3 Member States (Germany, Spain and Bulgaria), the impacts of policy on GBI and GBI on biodiversity are examined.

Briefing 6/ February 2020: Green and Blue Infrastructure, regional variation in CAP implementation and needs
This briefing compares the findings from the six BIOGEA case study areas to examine how the greening of pillar 1 of the CAP, a policy designed to be applicable across the whole of the EU, has been implemented differently and had variable impacts in different farming systems. This has relevance...
Briefing 5/ January 2020: BIOGEA Policy recommendations 2020. A Green Architecture for Green Infrastructure. How the future CAP could support Green and Blue Infrastructures
The BIOGEA project looked at the relationship between the different aspects of landscape complexity provided by GBI and their biodiversity benefits. Most GBI elements showed potential to support biodiversity. However, their effectiveness varies significantly among study sites...
