Policy objective: PO 2 - A greener, low-carbon transitioning towards a net zero carbon economy and resilient Europe by promoting clean and fair energy transition, green and blue investment, the circular economy, climate change mitigation and adaptation and risk prevention and management
Typology: Capitalization project
The challenge common to the PA and addressed by the ENGREEN2 project is to preserve biodiversity and natural ecosystems and to enhance green infrastructure for the strategic management of the cross-border area.
- The overall objective of the project is to promote cross-border cooperation with a view to improving the protection and conservation of nature, biodiversity and GI in the IT-SI programme area.
- This will be achieved by capitalising on the results and outputs of the Engreen project and transferring them to new partners, stakeholders and areas.Through pilot actions and a communication campaign, we will help consolidate and replicate the same results and promote the inclusion of good practices in public policies, thus bringing about a positive change to the current situation.
- The project is innovative because it aims to protect and conserve biodiversity and natural ecosystems through the restoration of different types of green infrastructure. It implements equally innovative environmental interpretation activities that raise the public awareness on and draw the attention to biodiversity and GI as an important element for a sustainable spatial development.
- Cross-border cooperation is indispensable since there are unique ecosystems and habitats on both sides of the border and only by creating synergies will it be possible to guarantee their adequate protection.
Outputs include pilot activities to mitigate threats and pressures on GI in the cross-border area, environmental interpretation activities for GI restoration and biodiversity conservation. Joint guidelines for the effective management of GI in the cross-border area will be implemented, including guidance on their application and examples of environmental interpretation. These activities will be integrated by dissemination and communication actions for the general public in order to strengthen the knowledge on biodiversity and GI and thus promote the implementation of environmental protection.
