Eklipse welcomes the new Expert Working Group (EWG) on nature-based Solutions and empowerment tools for coastal communities
As outcome of the Call for Expertise that was open in March & April 2023, 7 experts, coming from a broad range of expertise, gender and geographical representation, were selected to join the EWG. They are now developing an important milestone: The Method protocol. This report will detail the two methods selected by the EWG members to answer the knowledge synthesis need below agreed between Eklipse and the EmpowerUs project as requester: “How community empowerment tools and nature-based solutions (NBS) can contribute to addressing coastal challenges and building resilient communities?”. In order to make sure that the EWG have all the methodological, topical and regional expertise, the members have decided to have a Targeted Open Call for Experts coming soon. Stay tuned !
“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.
