Five Work Packages

The reserach in PREHAB is structured into four scientific work packages and one package devoted to management and communication. Each workpackage will deliver specific outcomes, which are useful for future work within PREHAB or directly for stakeholders involved in regional planning in the Baltic.

The overall objectives of individual workpackages, WP’s are:

WP 1
DATA- coordination, sampling and requirements
WP-leader: Johanna Mattila, Åbo Academy

The aim of this WP is to coordinate and deliver internal and external guidelines for how to optimise collection and compi-lation of data based on scientific and managerial criteria. This process involves identifying and reducing gaps in knowledge by collecting additional data in the field and from other sources.

WP 2
Developing methods for spatial prediction

WP-leader: Sergej Olenin, CORPI, Klaipeda University

The aim of this WP is to develop and deliver (a) recommendations for spatial prediction, (b) assessments of how human pressures can be used as quantitative or qualitative predictors and (c) maps of relevant biological properties. The guidelines will be based on criteria such as explanatory power, costs and predictive performance. Maps and knowledge about effects of human pressures will be used to define current ecological settings and scenarios to be used in subsequent WP’s.

WP 3
Developing tools for evaluation of goods & services

WP-leader: Markku Ollikainen, Helsingfors University

The aim of this WP is to develop, test and apply practical and conceptual methods for valuation of ecosystem goods & services in a context of geographic information systems (GIS).

WP 4
Demonstrating methodologies for integrated assessment of regional scenarios
WP-leader: Mats Lindegarth, University of Gothenburg

The aim of this WP is to deliver routines for integrated ecological and economic assessments of planning scenarios. These will be based on methods and data developed in WP’s 1, 2 and 3 and delivered as user-friendly tools accessible on the internet.

WP 5
Management and communication

WP-leader: Mats Lindegarth, University of Gothenburg

This WP will coordinate and communicate internal work within the program, but also deliver solutions for communicating user input to and scientific output from PREHAB. The main tools for this will be meetings with the defined user-group, the interactive web-page and a stakeholder conference.
