Greening knowledge

CEEweb Academy 2018.

CEEweb Academy 2018 took place on 25-27 September.

CEEweb for Biodiversity held its Academy 2018 dealing with land conservation, Natura 2000 and many other critical topics.

The CEEweb Academy, as part of a joint event in collaboration with Eurosite and EKLIPSE, took place in Budapest on 25-27 September 2018.

Acting as a follow up of CEEweb’s 2018 Annual Meeting, the Academy 2018 served to discuss in-depth the topics of private land conservation, Natura 2000 and adaptive management plans, wetlands and climate change, the value of Ecosystem services, and nature-based solutions in adapting to climate change.

A crash course in risk-based and robust decision making gave an insight to participants on how these forms of decision making can help identify the levels of exposure and vulnerability within a system, the potential impact or losses from change or a hazardous event, and on how to develop adaptation actions. The potential of mapping software for public collaboration in the tracking of changes was also addressed.

Moreover, participants visited one of Hungary’s most beautiful natural sites: the Kiskunság National Park. After it, different funding sources, such as LIFE, ERDF, NCFF, PES, national funding sources, CAP Pillar 2 and water funds, were discussed.
