New open call for peer review of the methodological protocol (Version 2) on Empowerment tools and Nature-based Solutions for coastal communities
Eklipse is inviting experts from different fields to review the methods protocol draft developed by the Expert Working Group of the request on Empowerment tools and Nature-based Solutions for coastal communities.
Status: Open until January 3rd, 2024
Eklipse was created in 2016 to help governments, institutions, businesses and NGOs make better-informed decisions when it comes to biodiversity in Europe. Eklipse has already answered requests on a vast range of topics, by synthesizing the best available knowledge from scientists and other knowledge holders.
“Biodiversity and pandemics: Interdisciplinary research and action priorities.”
–New report out-
We are happy to announce the release of the final knowledge synthesis report from the Eklipse Expert Working Group (EWG) working on biodiversity and pandemics. This report comes from a request put forward to Eklipse by the European Commission services, followed by a cross-sectoral consortium of requesters. Using a combination of literature and people-based knowledge synthesis methods, the EWG outlines recommendations for science policy regarding biodiversity and pandemics to develop broader transformative policies for human, animal, and ecosystem health. The report focuses on approaches to support and promote research needed to better prevent and manage spillover events in which pathogens originating in wildlife cause disease outbreaks or even pandemics in humans or large-scale disease events in domesticated animals (panzootics).
New episode out on “Evaluating the impact of Nature-based Solutions.”
Eklipse offers you the opportunity to explore its values and past requests by listening to enlightening conversations with experts, sharing their knowledge with us. If you want to know more about Eklipse added values or are interested in topics as Transformative change, Pollinator conservation, Restoration, Nature-Based Solutions, the Common Agricultural Policy, Impacts of green and blue spaces on mental health, pandemics and more, listen to our podcast episodes and learn more about the outputs and outcomes developed by our past Expert Working Groups.
“State of knowledge regarding how we can improve adherence to the Mitigation Hierarchy, with a particular focus on the avoid stage.”
–New report out-
We are glad to release the final evidence report from the Eklipse Expert Working Group (EWG) working on the Mitigation Hierarchy. This report results from a request to Eklipse by the French Biodiversity Agency (OFB). Based on two approaches, systematic mapping and an Applied Policy Delphi, the EWG synthesised knowledge on how ecosystem services/natural capital as concepts foster the conservation and enhancement of Biodiversity within planning processes in sectors likely to directly impact Biodiversity. The report also provides information about EU-wide cases and practices that actively considered and addressed the aspect of ecosystem services in the Mitigation Hierarchy. As a final step, the EWG developed recommendations on best practices.
