ECOPOTENTIAL: Informing management of protected areas through Earth Observation


In order to improve ecosystem benefits and functions in the face of increasing anthropogenic pressures, effective monitoring and modeling of the state and trends in ecosystem conditions and services is needed. This could be done through using existing and upcoming Earth Observation and field monitoring data.

ECOPOTENTIAL is a European- funded H2020 project coordinated by the National Research Council of Italy (CNR). It focuses its activities on twenty internationally recognized protected areas worldwide, including the Camargue Biosphere Reserve (France).

The project aims to deliver products of Earth Observation data to understand and monitor changes to ecosystems and support the effective management of these Protected areas.



This work was carried out by MedWet as part of the portfolio of Mediterranean wetland projects.
