Numerous threats to marine biodiversity occur at different levels, from the devastation of marine habitats to the great exploitation of marine resources. The consequences of this are social, economic and biological negative effects, which cross national borders.

Governance of Wetlands in Italy-Croatia cross border region - GREW

Coastal wetlands of Italy-Croatia cross-border region are facing severe impacts and consequent environmental modifications due to CC impacts. To cope with this open challenges a joint cross-border effort is needed as a “community of practice” represents a stronger response than isolated approaches. Exchanging and comparing strategies and solutions is a corner stone for adaptation to such a complexity as CC impacts in the area. Because of these threats, the management of wetlands and the protection of their biodiversity requires to overcome the sectorial and localised approach implemented until now and needs to tackle the problem from an eco-systemic point of view and an integrated approach.

Bioislands

Biodiversity preservation in rural and maritime areas of EU islands

“Biodiversity preservation in rural and maritime areas of EU islands” (BioIslands) project is focused on three of the main sectors related to biodiversity preservation. Increased land-use intensity in agriculture has caused an alarming decline in farmland biodiversity during the last century. Likewise, there is great concern over the degradation of pastoral landscapes by invasive species and soil erosion, the undermining of common property systems, and unsustainable land-use changes, such as mining, inappropriate afforestation and unsustainable agricultural practices. Currently, nearly half of the Earth’s terrestrial surface is transformed by agriculture and pastoralism, and thus, the contribution of agricultural and pastoralism areas to biodiversity is critical for successful long-term conservation.
