Project outputs

BIOGEA Publications

M. Díaz, M. & E. Concepción

This paper proposes a framework for the evaluation and design of policy tools for a more effective conservation of farmland biodiversity. The paper, considered a contribution to BIOGEA was based on the findings of research relevant to WP 2 and 4 of the BIOGEA project.

BIOGEA Communication materials

BIOGEA – Testing BIOdiversity Gain of European Agricutlure with CAP Greening

The project description is part of the presentation of the 2015-16 COFUND call for BiodivERsA. Read more at: http://www.biodiversa.org/1011

 

BIOGEA Deliverables

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.

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.

BIOGEA Briefings

Policy briefings produced as part of the BIOGEA project.

Marsden, K., M. Jay & Y. Kazakova

This briefing describes what Green and Blue Infrastructures (GBI) is and its importance for reaching EU environmental policy goals. It gives a brief overview of the GBI features which exist in the agricultural landscape and of current knowledge on the impact of the CAP “greening” on GBI.
