Promotes trans-disciplinary Climate Change Science aiming more informed decision-making towards sustainability

About this blog

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.

Easing the adoption of agent-based modelling (ABM) in tourism research

Bc3 just published this new Journal Article co-authored by Stefano Balbi. This research letter reports on a recent gathering of tourism ABM researchers to define the main challenges that face the adoption of ABM in tourism research. These include technical, communications, and novelty issues.

Prof. Markandya interviewed by Bloomberg “Cow Urine Kills Farm Pests in India’s First Fully Organic State”

Nimtshreng Lepcha seeps medicinal leaves in cow urine and sprays the brew over his tomatoes. It’s the main way pests are repelled on his farm in the Himalayan foothills and across the northeastern state of Sikkim, the first in India to go fully organic.

The 2016 BC3 International Scientific Advisory Committee (ISAC) meeting is being held today

Just after completing its change of headquarters to the University of the Basque Country Scientific Park, today 17th of June, BC3 is holding its 2016 ISAC annual meeting. From its new headquarters BC3 aspires to plan and develop its contributions to climate change research at a moment of particular importance. Climate change has scaled the rungs of political agendas all over the world, and to manage the BC3 contribution in this stage, BC3 counts with a consultive body of independent experts created to provide advisory opinions and analysis on science to the centre.

Esta conferencia está organizada por el Ilustre Colegio Oficial de Geólogos del País Vasco en colaboración con el Ayuntamiento de Bilbao.

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.
