Mapping Green Infrastructure in the Carpathians
logo 900 enHave you been involved in a green infrastructure project in the Carpathians? Your expertise is needed! Share it by completing a short online survey – in doing so you'll be supporting an EU LIFE project being carried out by the UNEP/GRID-Warsaw Centre, which aims to promote green infrastructure in this important mountain chain. 

The project 'LIFE Green-Go! Carpathians' aims to raise awareness among local communities in the Carpathians of the need to protect biodiversity in rural areas. In particular, the project is working to promote green infrastructure, highlight the need to maintain and restore ecological connectivity, and increase awareness of the importance of ecosystem services for sustainable local development. To achieve its aims, 'LIFE Green-Go! Carpathians' is supporting local cooperation to enhance green infrastructure in Natura 2000 sites in the Polish Carpathians.

An important aspect of this project is assessing the current state of green infrastructure across the whole of the Carpathians – and this is where your expertise is needed. 

A survey has been developed to create an inventory of significant green infrastructure-related initiatives in Carpathian countries (Parties to the Carpathian Convention), both complete and ongoing. These initiatives include government strategies, actions implemented by governmental agencies, NGO projects, and research grants, etc. This inventory will help the project understand the bigger picture of green infrastructure development across the whole of the Carpathians.

COMPLETE THE SHORT SURVEY NOW!

The project will run 2017-2020, and is being carried out by the UNEP/GRID-Warsaw Centre with support from the Secretariat of the Carpathian Convention and relevant national institutions.
