Project coordinated by the Biodiversity Foundation that aims to improve the conservation status of more than 3,000 hectares of wetlands to reverse the risk of extinction of the marbled teal and achieve a minimum of 125 breeding pairs in our country. In addition, specific objectives include eliminating and mitigating threats to the species, such as the reduction of its habitat, hunting or the lack of water quantity and quality, strengthening the populations of the species through a captive breeding program, improving knowledge about the ecology of the shearwater teal, integrating the ecological requirements of the species into sectoral policies and raising awareness among key stakeholders about the importance of the species and its habitat.
Fundación Biodiversidad participates as a partner in this project, coordinating communication and awareness actions. This initiative, which runs until 2025 under the coordination of the Brown Bear Foundation, aims to contribute to the improvement of trophic availability in climate change scenarios through the planting and treatment of small groves of native species producing summer and winter fruits for bears and with low climatic vulnerability.
Initiative of the Biodiversity Foundation to promote and improve employment and entrepreneurship within the framework of the green transition. Aimed at unemployed, working and entrepreneurial people, the program aims to move towards a climate-neutral and regenerative economy, positive in nature, efficient in the use of resources and circular, to generate new employment and business opportunities.
In the new programming period 2021-2027, the Empleaverde Program evolves to drive a skills revolution that contributes to the ecological transition.
Thus, Empleaverde Plus will support transformative training projects through learning-by-doing methodologies and training projects for the green transition.
New themes are incorporated into the focus of the program, such as bioeconomy, restoration or green infrastructure, and the different policies related to the green transition are covered. The practical orientation of the actions is reinforced to respond to the current and future demand for green transition training based on studies, plans or programs and on the contribution to European and national strategies.
It is co-financed by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the European Social Fund Plus (ESF+).
The Biodiversity Foundation and the Spanish Climate Change Office have coordinated the preparation of this study “Employment and ecological transition. Sources of employment, labor transformation and training challenges in sectors related to climate change and biodiversity in Spain”. The aim of this study is to analyze new sources of employment and professions related to the ecological transition; and new skills and competencies required. This will lead to the development of a proposal to create skills in line with the needs identified. The study focuses on two areas: biodiversity conservation, green infrastructure, connectivity and ecological restoration, and climate change mitigation and adaptation.
