 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'TESS will assist policy makers to integrate knowledge from the EU, national, regional and local level into the decision making process while also encouraging local people to maintain and restore biodiversity ecosystem services. To achieve this, a transactional environmental decision support system will be designed, linking central policy planning to local livelihoods. To develop this system, TESS will first research the needs and capacities of central policy makers and local actors, identify paths and trajectories of cooperation, and model required transactions between the central and the local in relation to each one’s needs. A set of representative case studies from the whole EU (including the New Member States and pre-accession countries) will test the validity of the models and consolidate the project’s results into the design for a transactional environmental decision support system, named TESS. TESS will also include base-line information and predictive models for Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA), Sustainability (Impact) Assessment (SIA) and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). TESS will be supplemented by a set of brief and memorable policy guidelines to ensure its usefulness and enable its application in a European context. The process of developing TESS will be facilitated by a large interdisciplinary consortium, in which participants include European associations with a strong network of support and influence not only in the Brussels milieu, but also at the grassroots.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Restoring biodiversity is vital for healthy living and keeping Europe's economy competitive. European researchers have designed a decision support system for the two-way exchange of environmental information between central policy planners and local people.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

For the past 50 years, subsidies and market forces have encouraged the intensive use of a few crop species in Europe. One of the results was the drastic decline of biodiversity at local level. European regulations offer some protection for what is left, but do not affect most local decisions that cause a change in land use outside protected areas.

The main aim of the 'Transactional environmental support system' (TESS) project was to help reverse the decline in biodiversity. Funded by the EU, it proposed that local communities are able to restore environments if they are informed, empowered, and helped by policymakers and society as a whole.

In the first phase of TESS, biodiversity management information requirements of authorities at national and intermediate levels were analysed, and practical needs and stakeholder perspectives at the local level were identified. The project also developed a database of models suitable for bio-socioeconomic predictions and decision-making assistance both locally and regionally.

TESS project partners then designed a system that integrates biodiversity information from the local level into central planning and land-use decisions, while at the same time supporting local people to conserve their environment. Other project results include recommendations and policy guidelines based on how biodiversity trends relate to different management practices across Europe.

Currently, the design is being tested in a knowledge web portal; this trial will continue beyond the duration of the TESS project. In the future, 'smart' environmental support systems will be developed that could exchange decision support (provided by central authorities) for fine-scale mapping of decision outcomes (provided by local communities).
