The project, which was run by the Dyfi BR, concluded at the end of October 2017.
Using a unique co-design approach, COBWEB concentrated on mobilising citizens within UNESCO Biosphere Reserves. We found the WNBR to be an excellent (and underused) resource for this kind of research project; where access to an already incentivised and organised pool of citizens enthusiastic about the sustainable development agenda is a definite advantage.
Having a government involved as a full partner in the project also proved to be an advantage; COBWEB benefited from direct communication channels with bodies responsible for setting and delivering policy relating to environmental data. This impact continues post project as Welsh Government is sustaining the COBWEB platform for a period in support of environmental decision making and policy.
