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

Policy brief

D44 Policy brief month 49 The policy brief presents concrete suggestions for a coordinated European policy framework for supporting IM for the supply of FES Deliverable will utilise a theorybased synthesis process based on contextualising theory of change

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.

Project upscaling, international links and replication

A report on the exchanges and links made with relevant European and international organisations and networks and on the project upscaling campaign Also detailed will be the publications produced by the project and information on the international events organised

Business package: Business in SINCERE and SINCERE for Business - first part

The bussiness package will link the work in SINCERE to the business world and will consist in two complementary sets of activities1Business in SINCERE oBusiness Marketing Clinic Each IA will have one or two virtual meetings to help identify the business language and rationale required in order to deliver a profitable business model oWorkshops with the Business Community two workshops with the European business community using the regional European network of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development WBCSD 2SINCERE for Business oOpen classes package of slides that can be used by each partner and is available for use outside the project to convey the potential of IM in business and economics universitiesoBusiness Meaning A brochure with the findings and outcomes of each working package using appropriate language for the business sector oBusiness Opportunities Scan a final infographic will be developed identifying business opportunities that IM can bring to economic and business development

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.

Information brief on innovative business models

D43 Information brief on innovative business models month 46 Developed on the basis of the report on upscaling potential D41 with feedback from the SynPol conference conducted at the European level bringing together practitioners scientists and policymakers from all levels to interpret project findings and derive joint policyrelated recommendationsDeliverable will utilise a theorybased synthesis process based on contextualising theory of change EFI is colead

Demand for policy support report

A report synthesising the bottom-up demand for coordinated local and regional implementation of European policies to support IM for FES with an analysis of supporting and inhibiting factors at the policy level to feed into WP4 (month 36)

Synthesis report of the experiences and lessons learnt, situating them in the global experiences and knowledge

Openaccess synthesis report presenting the main findings experiences and lessons learnt in developing and implementing PES and other IM in Europe situating them in a global contextDeliverable will utilise a theorybased synthesis process based on contextualising theory of change Deliverable will also host an upscaling of the results from survey on FES descriptors from D13 to European levelEFI is colead

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.

Synthesis of IA implementation report - second part

A joint synthesis with research and practice partners together as coauthors featuring the main results from the IA in terms of performance sustainability and congruence with policy frameworks compiled in an early stage draft D33 and a final version D34 to allow knowledge exchange across WPs

Analysis relating forest ecosystem services and the location of IM across Europe

D1.3 will integrate maps of individual FES and maps of innovative IM to perform a “gap” analysis that identifies areas where mismatches occur between supply and demand (e.g. regarding particular ecosystem services or particular forest types).

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.

D1.4 will synthesise what we can learn about PES preconditions from (i) proper PES quantitative impact evaluations, (ii) evaluations for related incentive tools, (iii) cross-sectional assessments (meta-studies), and (iv) other ad hoc experiences (including qualitative factors, stakeholder interviews, gap assessments etc.).

Dissemination Package

A report on the SINCERE Dissemination Package which includes the various communication measures and tools to bring the project to a broad audience based on the five target categories

Report on upscaling potential of IM

Analyses of a number of practical and general aspects of the casespecific IM developed by action case partners specially focusing on their transfer and upscaling potential To decrease the dependency of D41 on data from other deliverables team behind D41 will strive to also directly collect primary data from leads of projects case studies Deliverable will utilise a theorybased synthesis process based on contextualising theory of change EFI and Luke are colead
