Ecosystem Services is the topic of the first Water JPI TAP

The first Water JPI Thematic Annual Programming (TAP) action is on the topic of Ecosystem Services (SRIA sub-theme 1.1 )

The first Water JPI Thematic Annual Programming (TAP) action is on the topic of Ecosystem Services (SRIA sub-theme 1.1).

The Kick-off meeting took place on the 12th June 2019 in Dublin, Ireland and involved 21 participants from 16 organisations and 8 countries. Participants met to identify synergies and shared outputs that could be achieved over the 2-year lifetime of the TAP. Discussions were informed by learnings from the experience of FACCE-JPI TAP Soil and the details of the six participating project teams from Spain, The Netherlands, Ireland and Finland.

Over the break-out sessions the participants identified areas of added value that the TAP could progress. The next steps for the TAP are to complete and then deliver their Implementation Plan.
