Project Implementation Grants
The long-term future health of biodiversity requires reversing human degradation through creation of landscapes that are extensive, connected and resilient. Experience shows us that when exploitative activities end, barriers to recovery are removed, and nature is given time to heal itself, degraded landscapes can recover. The Endangered Landscapes Programme aims to restore natural ecosystem processes, healthy populations of flora and fauna and habitats that deliver sustainable benefits for nature and people.
The projects funded by the Programme showcase the extraordinary diversity and richness of Europe’s landscapes. From rugged river valleys in Western Iberia, to the forests of Eastern Europe and the marine environment of Turkey’s Mediterranean coastline, these projects illustrate the transformation that is possible when space is given to nature at the landscape scale.
