How can we delineate new and suitable strategies and plans for forest protection and management? A report realized by CMCC researchers Sergio Noce and Monia Santini provides a synthetic overview about the existing key forest ecosystem services in the Mediterranean area, and about how they seem currently impacted by climate and, in some cases, by land use change, human pressures and wrong management
Ratcheting up Brazil´s Nationally Determined Contribution: a consistent roadmap towards the global temperature goal 2 – 1.5 °C
How will Brazil contribute to the Paris Agreement’s mitigation goals? Which roles will play agriculture, forestry, land use, biofuels, electrifications of vehicles, carbon capture and storage? Roberto Schaeffer, researcher at Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, explored Brazil’s role in global efforts to address climate change. Watch the video.
Alessio Collalti, researcher at the CMCC Foundation – IAFES Division, is the new coordinator of the work group on forest modelling of the Italian Society of Forestry and Ecology SISEF. Among its research topics, the coordination and integration in a unitary perspective of the knowledge on forest ecosystems acquired in the last decades
Deforestation, biomass burning, environmental pollution, land use changes can alter its balance. We are talking about the soil organic carbon, and given the current climate change an accurate knowledge about its quantity is a key factor to improve carbon sequestration in soils and implement mitigation strategies. The FAO-CMCC report “Global Soil Organic Carbon Database” and its global database map in support to researchers and policy makers in land management and planning activities
Trees and forests can make the difference. They can affect temperature regionally in many areas of the world: it’s a matter of soil, color of land (darker or lighter), water availability, snow cover. The results of a study focused on how land cover changes impact on regional temperatures and precipitation, realized by CMCC researchers working in an international team
The cutting-edge Italian research on carbon cycle and greenhouse gas budget and its protagonists. ICOS-RI, the pan-european integrated carbon observation system research infrastructure and its Ecosystem Thematic Centre coordinated by the CMCC Foundation. Presented at the Radio24 programme “L’altro pianeta”
User requirements of climate information and impact indicators: European survey to inform the Copernicus Climate Change Service
A major survey is now live, enabling organizations and businesses across Europe to shape the development of the Copernicus Climate Change Service. An initiative of the SECTEUR project which aims to understand the requirements of climate information and impact indicators across a number of sectors: agriculture, forestry, coasts, health, transport, insurance and tourism. Available online until November 15th, 2016
