Measuring Climate Change Mitigation Potential for Ecosystem Restoration Projects
This document sets out the ethos, tools, and methods that can be used to provide a greenhouse gas (GHG) balance estimate for ecosystem restoration projects, using a diversity of landscape restoration projects funded by the Endangered Landscapes Programme (ELP) as case studies (covering a range of different habitats and restoration activities). The project aimed to…
Endangered Landscapes Programme: Restoring Landscapes for Life (2022)
A short, 4-minute film developed in 2022 to launch the new 2022-2030 ELP strategy, and celebrate achievements from just some of our funded projects to date:
ELP Strategy, 2022 – 2030
The Endangered Landscapes Programme strategy, 2022 – 2030, published May 2022 to provide direction and focus for its vision to restore landscapes across Europe, for the benefit of nature and people.
Grassland Conservation – Global evidence for selected interventions
A synthesis of the evidence describing the effectiveness of a number of key actions to restore grasslands. This review, led by the Conservation Evidence team, focuses on seeding and planting of grasslands globally.
Differences in European Greater Spotted Eagles migration strategies
Journal article produced with ELP support on the migration and wintering strategies of European Greater Spotted Eagles Clanga clanga. Published in Bird Conservation International on the 1st December 2021.
Landscape Restoration Monitoring Framework – March 2022
The Landscape Restoration Monitoring Framework is the updated guidance for grant applicants on how to manage the monitoring of their proposed landscape restoration projects.
Nature-based solutions to climate change: Leaflet
Nature-based solutions to climate change: How restoring landscapes for nature can provide significant benefits for climate is a leaflet-sized summary of the Advancing and Applying Knowledge Project of the same name.
Benefits of Restoring Europe Dataset
This Dataset was produced as part of a review of the evidence for the benefits of ecosystem restoration in Europe. It contains the full set of studies retrieved by the review and a description of their attributes. The review was carried out in 2020 by the UN Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC).
The Rewards of Nature Restoration – PDF photobook
The rewards of nature restoration is a photobook collating the mini-series of articles that the ELP published in collaboration with BirdLife International and UNEP-WCPC.
Benefits of Restoring Europe – Report
This technical report describes the methodology and findings of a review of evidence for the benefits of ecosystem restoration in Europe. The review was carried out for the Endangered Landscapes Programme by UN Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC), together with BirdLife Europe and Central Asia.
Natural Climate Solutions: Protocol and Guidance
This document sets out the ethos, tools, and methods used to estimate greenhouse gas balances for ELP restoration projects. It provides guidance on using two greenhouse gas assessment tools to estimate the climate change mitigation benefit of landscape-scale restoration projects and the restoration activities they include.
Natural Climate Solutions Full Report
This report describes the results of an ELP-funded Advancing and Applying Knowledge project that estimated the climate change mitigation potential of ELP projects. By comparing observed or projected project outcomes against a baseline ‘business-as-usual’ scenario, this report demonstrates the emissions reduction and carbon sequestration benefits that can be delivered by biodiversity-focused restoration.
