The benefits of using native species in large scale rehabilitation and restoration projects are highlighted in a new publication from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).


This page includes 17 thematic maps related to the implementation of criteria and indicators in the pan- European region. All the maps are based on the data collected with the WP3: National assessments on C&I implementation of the CI-SFM project. The data collection was performed through the distribution of an enquiry which included all together 37 questions structured around the project’s working definition.

The national and sub-national correspondents were asked to indicate their opinion on the use of C&I on a scale from 1 (not at all) to 9 (to a great extent), with the possibility to also submit ranking 0 (do not know/no opinion). In order to allow trends to be displayed, the points on the scale were grouped into five classes:

  • great extent (rank 9–7)
  • moderate extent (rank 6–4)
  • minor extent (rank 3–2)
  • not used (rank 1)
  • no opinion/no ranking

Some of the maps included in this page are also included in the CI-SFM Report (Chapter 5), but the online mapping solution provides a more interactive possibility to present the quantitative data derived from the enquiries. In the same time it allows the project team to display the exact ranking provided to the questions of the enquiry by the 38 countries included in the project. Please note that the online maps also include the rankings provided by sub-national administrations in Germany and Italy, which are visible by zooming into these two geographic areas.

The maps are listed below according to the order with which the questions generating the data for the maps appear in the enquiry. To mirror the structure of the enquiry, each map is named according to the specific questions which generated the data for the same map.  Please note that only the questions which delivered quantitative data were used to develop the online maps and therefore only these questions are listed here below. The full range of questions which build the enquiry is available in the Annex 2 in the CI-SFM Report.
