Quantify the GHG abatement potential and biodiversity and other ecosystem services (BES) of wetland restoration at local and EU levels → leading to increased use of wetland restoration as a GHGE mitigation tool.
Address the needs of the biodiversity comprehensively by mapping, monitoring, and assessing BES and restoration efforts for wetlands → produce guidebooks, tools, training → support climate-wise restoration.
Contribute evidence on BES provided by restored wetlands by producing harmonised and spatially explicit data on effects of restoration approaches on CC mitigation and BES → enabling authorities, managers and policymakers to design more accurate and effective wetland strategies.
Provide improved assessment of added value of wetland restoration approaches e.g. by identifying the most successful restoration measures in European wetlands → promote best practices of wetland restoration.
