In the current context of changing world (climate change, population increase, migrations, pandemics,…), the role of ecosystems and their management is key for the future of our planet. In our organisation, we contribute to improve this role participating, in an active manner, in the process to ensure that good practices are being implemented, looking for nature-based solutions.
