SELINA (Science for Evidence-based and sustainabLe decIsions about NAtural capital) is a Horizon Europe funded EU project that aims at improving the uptake of biodiversity, ecosystem conditions and ecosystem services information within the decision-making processes in the public and private sectors. Through a collaboration of experts from 50 partner organisations from all 27 EU member states, Norway, Switzerland, Israel, and the United Kingdom, SELINA sets new standards for international cooperation and looks for “seeds of change” – successful examples where biodiversity and ecosystem services have been integrated in different public and private decision-making contexts. By combining state-of-the art knowledge from transdisciplinary sciences, the project identifies the enabling factors in these processes and upscales them towards other contexts.
SELINA harnesses the power of transdisciplinary knowledge-sharing and provides guidance for evidence-based decision-making that supports the protection, restoration, and sustainable use of our environment. The project paves the way towards the transformative societal change required to achieve the ambitious goals of the European Biodiversity Strategy 2030 and the Green Deal.
