The overall objective of the SURF-nature project is to improve regional policies and practices for nature conservation and biodiversity by increasing the financing of respective measures through the ERDF, whilst increasing their impact. The project partners work on five topics, for exchanging experiences in funding policies, among which green infrastructure.
The brochure's main aim is to explain the basics of green infrastructure – a relatively new concept with many facets – relevant to Regional Policy. It also presents some approaches to this concept as identified in partner regions and describes the status of protected areas in Europe, the services that healthy ecosystem provide people with and the need to maintain their ecological coherence.
