All of the PROVIDE partners gathered in Müncheberg, Germany on 30 January – 1 February 2017 for the fourth project meeting, hosted by the ZALF Institute (http://www.zalf.de/de/Seiten/ZALF.aspx).
During this mid-project meeting the PROVIDE partners presented the results of the valuation exercise and discussed their usability and robustness. The outcomes of these activities will be continuously fed into the WP5 (policy mechanisms design and valuation) and WP6 conceptual framework and toolbox.
Additional objectives of the meeting were the launch of the next tasks of WP4 (understanding of determinants of values and transferability) and the analysis of the usability and implications of valuation results for WP5. Finally PROVIDE partners designed the precise planning of the next step of the project.
During the meeting a field trip was organised to visit the German Case Study Region in Märkische Schweiz.
