MEASURING THE SUCCESS OF RESTORATION ACTIONS – (WP4)
The purpose of WP4 is to measure the effect and success of restoration actions for algal forests in the Mediterranean in terms of ecosystem service change and social and economic returns.
WP 4 will build upon work conducted by WPs 1, 2, 3 and 5 in order to:
- determine the nature of the relationship between habitat restoration and ecosystem service generation and identify thresholds of restoration success;
- evaluate the importance of contextual factors and restoration techniques as determinants of restoration success;
- assess the socio-economic return of ecosystem restoration;
- identify policy recommendations to support the scaling up of algal forest restoration in the Mediterranean.
