REVIVO

DESCRIPTION

REVIVO is a young (November 2015) small non-profit NGO with a strong ambition and potential to become one of the leading environmental action entities in Slovenia. We have a wide background and experience in Ecology of Aquatic Ecosystems and their management both in fresh and marine waters. We specialise in research and subsequent mitigation of anthropogenic impacts on aquatic environments by working closely with stakeholders and managing authorities, bridging the gaps with innovative and integrated solutions adopted by all.

Having been gaining experience at the Fisheries Research Institute of Slovenia we have extensive hands-on experience cooperating with multitude of stakeholders, including aquaculture operations, hydro-power plant operations and fishermen as well as Ministries and other administrative bodies at local, national and international levels.

MAIN ROLE IN THE PROJECT

As the leader of Slovenian demo our main responsibility will be to perform WP6 tasks and deliver results for the Slovenian demo. We will assess the biophysical role of natural capital in hazard mitigation for Slovenian demo catchment through the tools developed in the WP2. We will be one of the demos responsible for identifying the major factors influencing the discrepancies between actual risk and people's perception of these risks through the WP3. In close cooperation with WP1 and 9 we will also be responsible for ensuring stakeholders participation and dissemination of results in Slovenia.

Through all of the tasks we aim to re-establish the appreciation and respect for nature in the collective minds of today's alienated societies. Our last but not least responsibility will also be to participate in WP8 with the objective of mainstreaming state-of-the-art knowledge on Nature Based Solutions and the insurance value of ecosystems.

While the wide ecological background of our researchers will enable us to perform the planned tasks efficiently and thus achieve all the objectives. Our experiences with multitude of stakeholders has also thought us the importance of good internal communication as well as the complexity of participatory processes and we will strive to reach the objectives through close cooperation with all partners of the consortium.
