Forecasting Social Impacts of Biodiversity Conservation Policies in Europe

FIDELIO was funded by a European Research Council starting grant awarded to Dr Nikoleta Jones.

The project was a partnership with the Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge. It aimed to explore socio-economic impacts of European "protected areas" and to predict how perceptions of these impacts change through time.

This project received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

The solution to saving biodiversity is to develop policies that are not exclusive and that work for the benefit both of nature and people
