EU Biodiversity (BD) Strategy. They are essential if we are to make informed decisions. Action 5 sets the requirement for an EU-wide knowledge base designed to be: a primary data source for developing Europe’s green infrastructure; resource to identify areas for ecosystem restoration.
In response to these requirements, the 42 months long ESMERALDA project aims to deliver a flexible methodology to provide the building blocks for pan-European and regional assessments on mapping ecosystems and their services. The work of the 18 partner consortium will ensure the timely delivery to EU member states in relation to Action 5 of the BD Strategy, supporting the needs of assessments in relation to the requirements for planning, agriculture, climate, water and nature policy. Z_GIS will contribute to the mapping approach and will integrate biophysical and integrated assessment techniques.
