CIVICS means "Caucasus Virtual Institute of Conservation Science and Education". It is a collaborative activity of scientists and professionals from several European and Asian countries.
CIVICS starts with content generated by the project "Socio-economic Tools for Integrated Conservation Planning in the Multi-Ethnic South Caucasus" funded from 2011-2014 by the German Ministry of Education and Development (BMBF).
CIVICS will contain some purely educational material. Foremost, it is meant to be a platform for research at the moment.
