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.

Woodland expansion in the presence of deer: 30 years of evidence from the Cairngorms Connect landscape restoration partnership

Woodland expansion in the presence of deer: 30 years of evidence from the Cairngorms Connect landscape restoration partnership

Restoring native woodlands to areas where they have been lost is a key element for tackling the nature and climate crises. Natural regeneration offers the potential to achieve this cheaply and at scale, but browsing ungulates like deer can inhibit this or alter the pattern of regeneration. This issue is particularly pronounced in the Scottish Highlands, a heavily deforested region with high deer numbers.

Landscape fires in Polesia: patterns, drivers, solutions

Landscape fires in Polesia: patterns, drivers, solutions

A summary of the importance of understanding the links between fire and ecosystem restoration, both in terms of the susceptibility of ecosystems to fire and its impacts. This is illustrated with a case study looking at the patterns and drivers of fires in the mires and forests of the Polesia landscape.

Costing tool for carbon finance feasibility analysis

Costing tool for carbon finance feasibility analysis

There are a wide range of potential costs that need to be considered when ecosystem restoration projects are engaging with voluntary carbon markets. This tool aims to help ecosystem restoration projects to carry out a preliminary financial feasibility analysis, to understand whether additional revenue from carbon finance is a viable and necessary option.
