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.
Eklipse is taking part in the EU Science Service
We are delighted to express our involvement as one of the dedicated tools for the science-policy interfaces on biodiversity in the “Science Service” strategy, set up by the EU and dedicated to provide decision makers with timely research-based options for policy- making on biodiversity. Alongside initiatives such as BISE, oppla and BiodivERsA, Eklipse will continue bringing its expertise to the society, by collecting and brokering knowledge for EU policy-makers and maintaining its collaboration with the Knowledge Centre for Biodiversity (KCBD).
Focus on a request –
Impacts of European energy policy on global biodiversity
The European Union (EU) is committed to tackling climate change which poses severe risks to the global environment and human well-being. Supporting renewable energy is a key policy direction for the EU to lower its contributions to climate change. However, renewable energy technologies have diverse effects on the environment and society. These effects and interacting elements are challenging to assess and need to be understood and integrated into designing future green sustainable solutions. Eklipse analysed the current evidence and provided recommendations for better insight into existing mechanisms by which energy policy interconnects with biodiversity and ecosystems services and further inform policymakers, scientists, UN state members on the above issues and provide policy-oriented solutions to anticipate and mitigate these issues. To learn more about this request put forward to Eklipse by the @Centre for Development and Environment University of Bern, consult the request´s webpage, read the outputs (report, article…) or listen to our podcast.
