2011-2012 Joint call
BiodivERsA call for proposals on "Biodiversity dynamics: developing scenarios, identifying tipping points and improving resilience"
The European partners in the BiodivERsA network have joined efforts to organize and fund a pan-European call for international research projects on "Biodiversity dynamics: developing scenarios, identifying tipping points and improving resilience."
- a) Developing integrated biodiversity scenarios
- b) Understanding and predicting biodiversity resilience and tipping points
- c) Decision support for biodiversity policy and management
9 projects were selected for €8.8 M funding among 8 different countries
► BUFFER: Partially protected areas as buffers to increase the linked social-ecological resilience in coastal ecosystems. Participating countries: FR (coordinator: Joachim Claudet), NO, PT, SE
► CoForTips: Congo basin forests: tipping points for biodiversity conservation and resilience of forested social and ecological systems. Participating countries: FR (coordinator: Claude Garcia), AT, BE
► EC21C: European Conservation for the 21st Century. Participating countries: PT (coordinator: Regan Early), FR, DE, SE
