The project

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.
