Realignment Wrauster Bogen

Impact on ecosystem services

  • From the ES assessment it is concluded that this measure generates overall a positive expected impact for many ES, mainly for:
    • “biodiversity”
    • Cultural services: Aesthetic information; Inspiration for culture, art and design; Information for cognitive development
    • Some regulating services: Erosion and sedimentation regulation (by water bodies); Water quality regulation: reduction of excess loads coming from the catchment; Climate regulation: Carbon sequestration and burial; Regulation extreme events or disturbance: Flood water storage
  • The expected impact on the development targets (“Biodiversity”) is very positive.
  • The expected impact for the different beneficiary groups is overall positive, with a very positive expected impact for future and local use.

The screening of the ecosystem services (ESS) that were effected by the measure `Wrauster Bogen` showed the additional benefits that were achieved with the implementation of the realignment.
