The fourth research sub programme of the  Ministry of the Environment of the Czech Republic (MoE) addresses the following issues: 
SP4h - Optimization of information including research applications for higher efficiency and
general availability of information
SP4i - Methods and tools for predicting and assessment, including modeling of socio-economic aspects of the sustainable development.

The sub programme objectives are:
- Develop a policies effectiveness evaluation methodology based on the principle of sustainable development.
- Develop proposals for tools and methodologies for digitalization of the maps
and information on the environment and finalize the integrated database of old
damage sites (contaminated areas and others).
- Create a new information structure within the scope of the environmental sector including
integrated entrance to information.
- Develop proposals for the updated model for lifelong learning education in environmental fields.
- Identify, measure and assess effectivity of public funds to the evironment protection..
- Create a system of indicators for evaluating the links between environment,
economy and society.
- The economically recycle used and selected secondary materials.
- Effective regeneration of old industrial regions.

The sub programme wins:
- Evaluation of policies according to the principle of sustainable development.
- Local maps with data on the environment in the network.
- Completion of an integrated database of old damage sites.
- Easy access to electronic sources of information on environmental and upgrading information infrastructure, including the implementation of model management
with knowledge of the real-life environment management information processes.
- Higher transparency in public spending on environmental protection.
- Continuous monitoring of the development exact environment in CR.
- Increase efficiency use of secondary raw materials.
- New possibilities of regeneration of old industrial region.

Es-Wamar ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY MANAGEMENT OF SWINE WASTE BASED ON INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY: A DEMONSTRATION PROJECT SET IN ARAGÓN (SPAIN) 2006. (GESTIÓN MEDIOAMBIENTALMENTE CORRECTA Y SOSTENIBLE DEL PURÍN PORCINO BASADA EN TECNOLOGÍAS INNOVADORAS: PROYECTO DE DEMOSTRACIÓN LLEVADO A CABO EN ARAGÓN (ESPAÑA) 2006.)
ES-WAMAR is a large-scale European demonstration Project on handling swine waste promoted by SODEMASA, the Society for Environmental Development (...)

ES-WAMAR is a large-scale European demonstration Project on handling swine waste promoted by SODEMASA, the Society for Environmental Development in Aragon, and approved by the European Union within the framework of the Life-Environmental Programme.

The Project will be conducted in three different areas, with the same initial problems, such is the large amount of pig waste produced, with several management systems being proposed in keeping with the specific characteristics of each area.

As alternative to the management of swine waste, the valorisation of the livestock waste is prioritized as nutrients recycling in farmlands, and later, when it does not exist enough farmland area available, swine waste is treated biologically.

This project provides to all users a Web site on the public gardens and vegetation in the Municipality of Rimini (Italy). It is uniquely based on open-source technologies.
It offers an interactive maps where citizens can click on a Municipality zone and look for parks and trees that populate them.
A 'tree card' provides information on the most available species and sometimes photos of single tree can be viewed.
The objective is to raise knowledge and awareness of citizens on the importance of public vegetation and its protection.

MODECOL Using mathematical MODeling to improve ECOLogical services of prairial ecosystems (Using mathematical MODeling to improve ECOLogical services of prairial ecosystems )

The project MODELCOL is integrated in the framework of the urgent need for solutions for compensating human deterioration of the environment. New environmental policies point out natural ecosystems as key elements for providing ecological services such as water purification, soil detoxification, climate regulation and advocate for the creation of new ecosystems (as surrogates for the degraded natural systems) for increasing their positive effect on the environment. The design of such new ecosystems needs to be optimized for providing the best ecological services. The project MODECOL aims at developing an hybrid model, sufficiently realistic, that will simulate a prairial ecosystem (modelled through IBM) correlated through feedbacks to environmental conditions (modelled through PDEs). This approach aims to provide a virtual laboratory for testing ecological hypothesis on complex ecological systems.
