BIO2CARE

Outputs of the project (Project Deliverables)

Overview

BIO2CARE applies an integrated approach responding to PAs entire environmental systems. It will deliver a wide range of differentiated outputs. Its main deliverables are: 

  1. A set of studies, including a methodology, current situation analysis and SWOT analysis studies
  2. A set of monitoring equipment fully operational per country (e.g. piezoelectric and sound sensors, surveillance drones, sound-sensitive lights etc.), which operates in two different levels: high-tech monitoring of fauna and flora and high-tech monitoring of illegal activities
  3. Two sets of ICT applications and e-tools for valorising studies and data produced from monitoring systems per country; BIO2CARE Calc for estimating the carrying capacity in the areas of interest and BIO2CARE Symbiosis for examining, assessing and proposing potential symbiotic activities, as well as two (2) smart applications (OSX/Android) for facilitating and promoting green tourism (BIO4TOURISM)
  4. Two small infrastructures certified for disabled people use, i.e., pathways for recreational purposes and birdwatching for handicapped and disabled
  5. One common eco-labelling scheme, including varying certification levels
  6. Training sessions: two training sessions regarding the use of BIO2CARE Software and two targeted workshops regarding BIO2CARE labelling scheme 
  7. One Policy Recommendations Report, based on lessons-learned during BIO2CARE implementation and scientific results from studies, which will be discussed during last quarter of project with local, regional and national authorities

(1), (2) and (3) will form the essential components of one integrate Decision Support System (DSS) per country, that could operate separately or jointly on CB area. Those three elements will eternally feedback each other. (4), (5) and (6) will feedback the DSS.
