Assessment and mapping of grassland ecosystems condition and their services in Bulgaria (IBER-GRASS)
The partnership will deliver results that contribute towards EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020 goals, promoting efforts for more effective use of nature resources and avoidance of net losses of biodiversity and ecosystem services. The EEA Grants aim to improve integration of biodiversity considerations in sectoral policies and legislation. Our project is focused on grassland ecosystems. Inventory and mapping will cover 100% territories outside Natura 2000. Following the national methodologies, the indicators for condition and services will be assessed. The expected outcomes involve reliable maps of the ecosystem conditions and services of the 5 grassland types with attribute tables to be input in the National Biodiversity Information System. We will ensure adequate dissemination of results and aim at reaching all relevant stakeholders involved with management or use of the ecosystem services. Thus we will work towards well informed decision making considering local stakeholder interests.
