SIXTH FRAMEWORK PROGRAMME, SUB-PRIORITY 6.3

Sustainable Development, Global Change and Ecosystems

Integrated Project

General objectives

  • To develop an integrated large scale risk assessment for biodiversity as well as terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems as a part of environmental risk assessment.
  • To focus on risks consequent on climate change, environmental chemicals, rates and extent of loss of pollinators and biological invasions.
  • To establish socio-economic risk indicators related to the drivers of biodiversity pressures as a tool to support long-term oriented mitigating policies and to monitor their implementation.
  • To develop, for the first time, a research network that is consistently thinking, interacting, and investigating on a continental scale across different environmental problems (impacts) and across different spatial and temporal scales of ecosystem diversity changes.
  • To provide a contribution to objective based politics, to policy integration and to derive outcome-oriented policy measures in the field of biodiversity preservation by contributing to the integrated assessment of socio-economic drivers affecting biodiversity and integrated, long-term oriented means to mitigate them.
