Call for research funding directed to Wetland ecosystem services
The ecosystem services prioritized in the call are water management in wetlands, balance of water flow and/or groundwater formation as a part of climate adaptation as well as retention of metals. The call has two parts. Part A addresses wetlands as a nature-based solution for climate adaptation. Part B addresses the possibility of wetlands to hinder leakage of metals and/or diminish negative effects of such leakage. The Swedish EPA invites researchers or research groups to apply for funding for projects of up to SEK 5 million distributed over three years (2020–2022). The aim is that several projects will be funded.
