the need for an information platform on ecosystem assessment in europe
The need for an information platform on ecosystem assessment in Europe
  • EEA 2010 Survey (targeting 38 countries, feedback from 22):
  • http://biodiversity.europa.eu/ecosystem-assessments/events-1/eureca-meetings/workshop-ecosystem-assessments-europe-12-13-october-2010/documents/final-report.doc
    • Variety of approaches, local contexts
    • Different understandings of the concepts, different categorising of ecosystem services
    • Ecosystem assessments are often undertaken in isolation, with sectoral approaches, limited sharing of experiences
    • Absence of clearly defined policy goals
    • Civil society and private stakeholders are largely absent,& implementing agencies largely confined to academic institutions

the need for a virtual library
The need for a virtual library
  • The information on the platform: not up-to-date, far from sufficient
  • A virtual library is needed to provide a more comprehensive and indexed collection of documents
  • Populated by multiple experts
  • Collect key documents with mandatory information on their content
  • Tools will be available for
    • Uploading documents with mandatory information
    • Searching for documents (based on the information provided)
a questionnaire on the scope of the virtual library

Single activity

Short term perspective

Local scale

Ecology

Sociology

Economy

Long term perspective

Across spatial scales

Envisaged outcomes

  • Detailed ‘country profiles’ available on the EEA website
  • An analytical report “Resource efficiency in Europe” (Oct 2011) reflecting on trends, similarities and differences in policy responses
slide12
EBM is not a new concept…

Objectives of the survey:

Capture and disseminate country experiences

Expand the knowledge base on ecosystems and their services in Europe, by providing up-to-date policy information on national approaches, strategies, targets and instruments

Provide inputs to support the policy processes at national, EU and international level
