Pollinator&Environmental Protection Project Cyprus

Establish pollinator gardens to enhance biodiversity and support pollinator communities in Cyprus.

In Progress

Detailed description

The project deals with the impacts of climate change on biodiversity and environmental integrity on Cyprus. We focus on the protection of pollinators and on measures to improve environmental quality. A Pollinator and Environmental Protection Task Force (PEPTF) with members from ROTARY and ROTARACT clubs, as well as individuals and organizations in Cyprus carries out the project. We will continue to seek partnerships with other NGOs, municipalities, schools and the Environmental Ministry in Cyprus. We have involved individuals, schools and municipalities in planning and implementing pollinator gardens and pollinator parks throughout the island. Jointly with our partners, we monitor the use of these facilities by pollinators in order to measure the success of our project on an island-wide basis. Recently, we expanded our scope by addressing environmental quality through promoting green roofs on public and private buildings and aim to advance green cities and municipalities in Cyprus.

Community needs, project impact, and sustainability

Community assessment: How the project team learned about the community’s needs

This is an island-wide project that involves various cities and municipalities. The project, focusing on the protection of pollinators and environmental integrity is the first of its kind on the island. Given the present state of climatic conditions and anticipated changes in climate, the need for our project is obvious. Already now, Cyprus suffers from ongoing desertification, which affects biodiversity of flora and fauna, in general, and those of pollinators, in particular. The “urban heart island effect” intensifies warming in cities and lads to serious threats for urban inhabitants. Thus, measures to reduce this risk, such as green roofs and a general increase in green spaces are obvious steps to reduce adverse consequences of climate change in cities.
