The document provides guidance for applicants submitting an Expression of Interest for seascapes restoration grants in 2024, detailing the application process, selection criteria, geographic focus and institutional eligibility criteria. 

Cumbria Connect Climate Change Mitigation Summary

Cumbria Connect Climate Change Mitigation Summary

For this project, these interventions include afforestation on grassland and rewetting drained peatland.

Greater Côa Valley Climate Change Mitigation Summary

Greater Côa Valley Climate Change Mitigation Summary

In this project, the approach to restoration is through passive rewilding. Carbon benefits are due to resulting improvements in the condition of ecosystems and reduced fire risk.

Carpathian Mountains Climate Change Mitigation Summary

Carpathian Mountains Climate Change Mitigation Summary

For this project, the restoration intervention included in the assessment is afforestation.

Cairngorms Connect Climate Change Mitigation Summary

Cairngorms Connect Climate Change Mitigation Summary

The interventions covered in this assessment include peatland re-wetting, expansion of native woodlands across heather moorland, restructuring of Scot’s pine plantations, and the removal of non-native plantations. Cairngorms Connect also undertake collaborative deer management, to allow woodland expansion and peatland recovery, and restoration of floodplain mire and fen.

Solent Seascape Climate Change Mitigation Summary

Solent Seascape Climate Change Mitigation Summary

For this project, interventions include afforestation on heather moorland, restructuring plantations to allow regeneration and rewetting drained peatlands.

Polesia Climate Change Mitigation Summary

Polesia Climate Change Mitigation Summary

For this landscape, the interventions include rewetting drained peatlands and avoiding emissions from deforestation.

Mura-Drava-Danube Climate Change Mitigation Summary

Mura-Drava-Danube Climate Change Mitigation Summary

The interventions included in this assessment are the removal of non-native forest and cropland, the creation of native forest and grassland and the introduction of native cows.

Iron Curtain to Green Belt Climate Change Mitigation Summary

Iron Curtain to Green Belt Climate Change Mitigation Summary

Carbon benefits in this project are achieved by reforesting burned areas, restoring grasslands and reducing forest degradation by encouraging native oak forest growth.

Iberian Highlands Climate Change Mitigation Summary

Iberian Highlands Climate Change Mitigation Summary

In this project, restoration is achieved by passive rewilding. Carbon benefits are due to resulting improvements in ecosystem condition and reduced fire risk.

Policy Brief: Nature-based solutions to climate change

Policy Brief: Nature-based solutions to climate change

The Endangered Landscapes Programme (ELP) is advancing large-scale restoration of marine and terrestrial habitats at 18 locations across Europe, reversing impacts of unsustainable use and creating places that deliver long-term benefits for nature, climate, and people.

Climate Change Mitigation in the ELSP

Climate Change Mitigation in the ELSP

This report demonstrates how restoration practitioners can use existing tools, methodologies and data to rapidly estimate the potential climate change mitigation benefits of specific restoration activities. More specifically, it reveals (through an assessment of existing Endangered Landscapes & Seascapes Programme projects) how interventions aimed at enhancing biodiversity can help fight climate change.
