IDES - How floodplains clean the water of the Danube: New project for Danube basin
WELCOME TO IDES FIRST NEWSLETTER
You are receving this e-mail because you may be one of the interested actors in our developing project ”Improving water quality in the Danube river and its tributaries by integrative floodplain management based on Ecosystem Services”.
The IDES project aims to develop and implement a transnational integrative ecosystem service approach to improve water quality management and thus, generating win-win-situations for multifunctional floodplains instead of trade-offs.
The basic idea behind the ecosystem service approach is connecting the needs of humans with nature, both mutually influence each other. Human activities have a direct or indirect impact on nature. Conversely, natural events can affect society and intact ecosystems serve human well-being. Thus, so called ecosystem services (ES) bring direct or indirect benefit to people.
The aim of the ES approach is to illustrate these economic, health or even psychological benefits and values of ecosystems to society and thus to raise the awareness of the need of healthy ecosystems and to foster sustainable management.
