Belgium is involved in four out of nine European Projects funded by BiodivERsA
BiodivERsA launched in November 2011 its third joint call on “Biodiversity dynamics: developing scenarios, identifying tipping points and improving resilience of ecosystems.”This call addressed a topic at the forefront of the biodiversity field, and was organised around the three following themes:
- Developing integrated biodiversity scenarios
- Understanding and predicting biodiversity resilience and tipping points
- Decision support for biodiversity policy and management
Nine projects will be funded for 8.5 M Euros. Belgium is involved in four of them:
CoForTips: Congo basin forests: tipping points for biodiversity conservation and resilience of forested social and ecological systems Participating countries: FR (coordinator), AT, BE.
REGARDS: Resilience of marginal grasslands and biodiversity management decision support.Participating countries: FR (coordinator), AT, BE, DE, NO.
SIGNAL: European gradients of resilience in the face of climate extremes.Participating countries: DE (coordinator), BE, BG, FR.
TIPPINGPOND: Tipping points, biodiversity, resilience and ecosystem services: Ponds as model systems. Participating countries: BE (coordinator), DE, FR, SE.
