Grassworks: What works and why in grassland restoration in Germany? A multi-region social-ecological assessment and pilot implementation of successful approaches

Duration: 2021-2024

Funded by the FEdA Initiative on Research in Conservation of Biodiversity/Federal Ministry of Education and Research, BMBF

Improving grassland restoration requires both detailed ecological studies as well as a deep understanding of the social and governance context in which restoration takes place. Grassworks will address these requirements by focusing on species-rich, multifunctional grasslands within socially diverse cultural landscapes, as well as on the ecological and social contexts they are embedded in. Building on an in-depth social-ecological understanding, including possible trade-offs and synergies, the project will derive concrete scenarios and recommendations for the future.
