Modeling trade-offs across carbon sequestration, biodiversity conservation, and equity in the distribution of global REDD+ funds

The program on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) is one of the major attempts to tackle climate change mitigation in developing countries. REDD+ seeks to provide result-based incentives to promote emission reductions and increase carbon sinks in forest land while promoting other cobenefits, such as the conservation of biodiversity.

La burbuja financiera de las energías fósiles

Mikel Gonzalez-Eguino, investigador Senior de BC3 - Basque Centre for Climate Change: Klima Aldaketa Ikergai, junto a Ricardo Pedraz, consultor de Afi, ha escrito una tribuno de opinión titulado " La burbuja financiera de las energías fósiles" en Cinco Días. En este artículo los investigadores Gonzalez-Eguino y Pedraz analizan las inversiones actuales en energía y la inestabilidad financiera que podría ocasionar si no se cambia el sistema para incrementar la inversión en energías renovables y reducir en energías fósiles.

BC3 participate in a new study on the contribution of land use to the mitigation of climate change in the future

The prestigious journal Nature Climate Change has just published a report on the role of land use in mitigating climate change and how this should be extensively applied to prevent the increase in global temperature. This study indicates which measures on forests, agriculture and food systems may be critical.

Contribution of the land sector to a 1.5 °C world

The Paris Agreement introduced an ambitious goal of limiting warming to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels. Here we combine a review of modelled pathways and literature on mitigation strategies, and develop a land-sector roadmap of priority measures and regions that can help to achieve the 1.5 °C temperature goal. Transforming the land sector and deploying measures in agriculture, forestry, wetlands and bioenergy could feasibly and sustainably contribute about 30%, or 15 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (GtCO2e) per year, of the global mitigation needed in 2050 to deliver on the 1.5 °C target, but it will require substantially more effort than the 2 °C target
