Earth has warmed 1.09℃ since pre-industrial times and many changes such as sea-level rise and glacier melt are now virtually irreversible, according to the most sobering report yet by the Intergovernental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).more»
On Saturday, 22 May, SaveGREEN joined millions of people around the world in celebration of World Biodiversity Day, this year under the slogan “We’re part of the solution #ForNature”. This year’s Biodiversity Day is particularly important as the global community is on the verge of adopting a new post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework. Look at the video for the celebration of the Biodiversity Day.
Roads, railways, power-lines and other linear infrastructures are global major threats to biodiversity. Yet, they are also essential to meet the demands of growing populations. Urgent decisions and targeted actions are needed to ensure that the current, very rapid increase in linear infrastructure — particularly in the world’s most biodiverse regions where some of the fastest growth is occurring — does not irreversibly damage the natural environment.
Dear all, we would like to invite you to an international three-day educational online event, with topic “Benefits from monitoring and conservation of biodiversity”. Topics related with monitoring and conservation of flora and fauna species as well as habitat types will be presented. At the end of the presentation of each topic, a discussion will be conducted.
With ecological corridors in the Danube region currently threatened by the lack of proper planning of economic development activities, the need to fund interventions in line with the standards of green infrastructure is critical. Thus, the SaveGREEN project just proposed a new set of general recommendations for funding interventions that promote GI from the EU to the regional, national, and local levels.
The SaveGREEN project team had a forward-looking 2021 launch by participating in the IENE International Conference “LIFE LINES – Linear Infrastructure Networks with Ecological Solutions.” After 25 years of existence, it was the first virtual conference organised by IENE, a network aiming to provide an independent, international, and interdisciplinary arena for the exchange and development of knowledge on transportation, infrastructure, and ecology with the aim to promote a safe and ecologically sustainable pan-European transport infrastructure.
