Project

LIFE GREEN4BLUE

Climate change, land transformation, intensive soil and water use/pollution: these are just some of the causes that have contributed most to the degradation of habitats, reducing their level of biodiversity and their ability to provide traditional ecosystem services.

But the spread of alien wildlife species for commercial or pseudoamatorial purposes also plays a part in eroding the biodiversity of environments, seriously compromising the balance of ecosystems.

The LIFE GREEN4BLUE project fits into this scenario. The project aims to achieve environmental regeneration of land reclamation canals to enhance their role as blue-green infrastructures connecting natural areas within the territory (Natura 2000 Network), through innovative management which will integrate:

  • Hydrological safety
  • Support of local biodiversity
  • Combating invasive alien species (IAS)
  • Landscape preservation
Project co-financed by the EU’s LIFE program – Nature and Biodiversity
