The objective of this course is to provide key information and integrative methodologies to assist in the decision-making process for the sustainable management of coastal, freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems. It also emphasizes the crucial role of Nature-Based Solutions and their integration into broader planning frameworks to form large networks of solutions to address the impacts of global change, also known as Blue-Green Infrastructure Networks (BGINs).

The course covers many relevant conceptual and practical aspects, including multidisciplinary fundamentals and providing tools, techniques and methodologies, for the successful design and implementation of BGINs across different socio-ecosystems.

The contents of the course are derived from the recent advances achieved with the ALICE project (2017-2023) whose objective is to analyze the effects of climate and land use changes on the provision of ecosystem services and biodiversity conservation in European Atlantic landscapes in order to implement BGINs that help minimize the effects of global change.

The faculty consists of researchers with extensive experience in many disciplines ranging from biology, hydrology, sociology, ecological informatics and economics.

The integration of this experience and skills guarantees a high-level academic product, providing a multidisciplinary approach of great value for today’s social challenges.
