EU Grassland Watch builds upon the Copernicus for Natura 2000 project (COP4N2K) launched in 2019. It aims to create a service that will aid in effective satellite monitoring of grasslands in Natura 2000 sites. This is paramount for supporting on-the-ground conservation efforts.

You can choose to attend the event in-person or online when registering. Register by 8 September to attend in-person, or by 11 September to attend online. 

EU Grassland Watch will

  • be more user-driven and foster a strong user community that is closely involved in its development
  • include additional Natura 2000 sites
  • provide more thematic detail to be more informative and relevant to end users
  • establish a closer integration with products from the Copernicus Land Monitoring Service, to contribute to greater consistency across the ecosystem

Following this launch event, many other user engagement activities will take place.

The Copernicus for Natura 2000 project (COP4N2K) supports the monitoring and reporting of Natura 2000 sites dominated by grassland.

This prototype will now be upgraded and expanded into a fully operational service. The expansion and upgrade of EU Grassland Watch responds to the European Commission’s commitment to the green and digital agenda of the EU Green Deal. It will harness the potential of the digital revolution to improve the knowledge on biodiversity and support robust policy action.
