Spurring INnovations for Forest ECosystem SERvices in Europe

Deliverables

Pre-feasibility assessment

D3.1: Pre-feasibility assessment. A report presenting the social, economic and environmental pre-feasibility assessment of the set of developed novel business models, policies and mechanisms across the case studies (month 16) KU Leuven is co-lead

Awareness-raising campaign and capacity building for FES – first part

A report (with subsequent updates) on the awareness campaign at the local scale in each IA case region. Following the webinars for IA stakeholders and the broader forest and conservation community, subsequent deliverable updates will include a report on these capacity building activities.

Inventory of IM in Europe

D1.2 will compile the first comprehensive, user-friendly and openly accessible European database (incl. a series of maps and infographics) for innovative economic mechanisms that incentivise FES provision in Europe. The inventory will be representative of the sector (water-based FES, biodiversity, carbon sequestration, …),,location, payment vehicle, governance system, etc.

Website and social media campaign

The web portal will be the main repository for the project information and online interaction. It will serve as the focal point for IA case findings, as the online hub for the SINCERE Learning Architecture and as a source of information on FES and IM. The social media campaigns (Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook) will be launched to raise awareness and engage stakeholders, tailored to specific target groups and ongoing through-out the project.

Awareness-raising campaign and capacity building for FES – second part

A report (with subsequent updates) on the awareness campaign at the local scale in each IA case region. Following the webinars for IA stakeholders and the broader forest and conservation community, subsequent deliverable updates will include a report on these capacity building activities.
