The project PEGASUS (Public Ecosystem Goods And Services from land management – Unlocking the Synergies), coordinated by the Institute for European Environmental Policy (UK) and where Euromontana is a partner, has been invited to Grant Agreement.
This Horizon 2020 project will develop innovative, practical ways of making Public Goods and Ecosystem services concepts accessible and operational: it will identify how, where and when cost-effective mechanisms and tools for policy, business and practice can most effectively be applied, increasing the sustainability of primary production.
Mountain areas are a large provider of these Public Goods and we strongly believe that this PEGASUS project will be of great interest for all Euromontana members. It is a good opportunity to work more on this issue, after the Euromontana conference in Arantzazu in 2009. The project is expected to start in 2015.28 November 2014
