Deliverable D2b presents:

  • EU policy overview - identifying the GBI aims
  • Identifying the GBI features included in policy
  • Refining the findings to identify critical aspects for the different governance levels
  • Conclusions and next steps

The Data Management Plan (DMP) of BIOGEA project describes how data is handled. There are various data types in the project and the BIOGEA DMP includes description of the data to be collected/created; methodologies for data collection and management; plans for data sharing and access; strategy for long-term data management; ethics and other considerations. 

 

The communication, dissemination and exploitation (outreach) plan describes the process of engaging with stakeholders throughout the project and disseminating the project results to the identified end users directly and by means of identified multipliers (such as specialised press and websites). It contains detailed information about the management, goals and objectives, selection of audience with the appropriate message and medium. It will be updated on a regular basis throughout the project.

This document presents a common framework for BIOGEA, to assess and evaluate the impacts of changes to the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) on Green and Blue Infrastructure (GBI) in the agricultural landscape and how the presence, quality and management of GBI influences biodiversity and the provision of ecosystem services (ES). The BIOGEA Assessment Framework can be regarded as a living document which will be refined and developed as the project ideas are tested through the case studies and following feedback from PRDN.
