Prof. Markandya one of International Adaptation experts authoring the UNEP Adaptation Gap Report 2017

UNEP’s Adaptation Gap Report series focuses on Finance, Technology and Knowledge gaps in climate change adaptation. It compliments the Emissions Gap Report series, and explores the implications of failing to close the emissions gap. The report builds on a 2014 assessment by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), which laid out the concept of ‘adaptation gaps’ and outlined three such gaps: technology, finance and knowledge.

BC3 Journal Article “Carbon risk and optimal retrofitting in cement plants: An application of stochastic modelling, MonteCarlo simulation and Real Options Analysis”

The cement sector is highly intensive in CO2 emissions and is the second biggest industrial sector in terms of emissions after the electricity generation sector. It emits CO2 from the combustion of fossil fuels, the calcination process and, indirectly, from electricity consumption. The ambitious climate change policy in the EU means that carbon prices and fuel prices are two very important sources of uncertainty that may affect the competitiveness of the sector. This paper focuses on understanding the risk associated with the future price of European Union Emission Trading System allowances.

Prof. Maria Jose Sanz and Dr. Agustin del Prado participated in the IPCC “Second Lead Author Meeting for the Elaboration of the 2019 Refinement to the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories”

The Scientific Director of BC3, Prof.Maria Jose Sanz and Dr. Agustin del Prado, Senior researcher at BC3, participated in the IPCC "Second Lead Author Meeting for the Elaboration of the 2019 Refinement to the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories", that tool place in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe (25 Sep - 28 Sep 2017).

Seminars

Seminars

The aim of this programme jointly promoted by University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and BC3, is to contribute to climate change knowledge through a series of lecturesled by recognized academicians in the field.

Summer School

Summer School

The objective of the summer school is to offer an updated and recent view of the ongoing
trends in climate change research in an annual basis. The school is designed to approach
the main scientific topics with a multidisciplinary approach, depending on the main trends on climate change issues and allowing for an integrated view and understanding of the problem. As years go by, the school might evolve its different approaches when teaching about climate change

Spring University

Spring University

This training program is an annual 2-week intensive advanced course that enables simple use of complex models through artificial intelligence. The course is meant to build a new generation of scientists and policy analysts, capable of using coupled human-environmental models in research, and policy, to address and solve complex sustainability problems.

Workshops

Workshops

Klimagune

Klimagune

The Klimagune Workshop is a forum for informal discussion on climate change that is open
to all the agents in the Basque Science and Technology Network. The aim of this initiative is to share knowledge, projects and developments in terms of scientific advancements, focusing on the creation of synergies and possible frameworks for cooperation between the various research groups, organisations and institutions that address this matter.

Training Caravan

Training Caravan

The Education Department of the Basque Government and BC3 have gathered to carry
out the Training Caravan initiative, which has as main aim to raise research vocation
among the students of the Basque Country and inform about climate change research.

Through info.bc3research.org blog, you will have access and the opportunity to share in social media, all the BC3 related news and events. This blog will be the platform to disseminate the information about BC3 research (scientific publications with edits of authors, research projects in which BC3 is involved and its impact (activities organized within the scientific research process, the ongoing scientific findings and outputs, “capacity building” activities organized and focused on the decision-making processes (Policy), scientific networks creation and any other science dissemination initiative). Knowledge transfer related news and initiatives will have their own space in this blog , where the activities and events that BC3 organizes to bridge science with policy-making, enterprises and society as a whole will be gathered. Aligned with BC3´s Strategic Goal, promoting the transition towards Trans-disciplinary Science is the final objective. Science with and for society. All the produced news related to the research institution and to Climate Change, organized events by BC3, as well as the activities in which the Knowledge Body of BC3 participate, will be shared in this blog. You have the opportunity to subscribe to our RSS and register to our distribution list.

Low Carbon

This research line deals with one of the two themes of climate research – mitigation of greenhouse gases (GHGs) that are responsible for climate change. A major source of these gases is the production and consumption of energy and a great deal of effort is being devoted to understanding how to reduce emissions related to energy without hurting the economic and social wellbeing of people now and in the future.

Climate and Natural Environment

Climate change has complex impacts on human well-being. One key pathway is through its effects on natural capital (natural resources and ecosystems). BC3 is concerned with the scientific study of the interplay between climate change and the environment which ultimately affects human well-being. One of our crosscutting research lines is “Climate and the Natural Environment” (CNE). It addresses the interlinkages between climate change, natural capital (natural resources and ecosystems) and the benefits that derive from them in terms of human well-being.

Health and Climate

Climate change poses not only environmental and development issues, but it also represents a big threat to human health, and in the public mind this impact gives rise to the greatest concern. Health assessment in BC3 focuses on these threats, and analyses as well the social, economic and behavioral factors that influence vulnerability of people, communities and social systems. This social dimension is however not fully integrated in the decision policy yet, and BC3 research line on health attempts to contribute in filling this gap.

Climate Policy

The research line “Regional, National and International Climate Policy” focuses on the policy-side of climate research. Sound policy of course is based on the results of work done under the other research lines (energy, natural resources & ecosystem services and health), but also involves some further lines of investigation. This research line therefore will involve drawing out the policy implications of the research undertaken under the other lines as well as undertaking research on issues directly related to the formulation of policy.
