The 8th European Conference on Sustainable Cities & Towns, the flagship conference on local sustainable development in Europe, is taking place from 27-29 April 2016 in Bilbao, Basque Country.C3 will participate actively in this Conference and has organized a Round Table Dialogue entitled “Bridging science and policy to support cities to mitigate and adapt to climate change” where participants will be able to discuss their experiences and perceptions on current strengths and weaknesses of such partnerships and opportunities for the future based on the current and future needs of cities regarding climate planning.
BC3 just published a leaflet on the Urban Research carried out in the centre.
Urban research at BC3 interacts with its four major research areas ((1) Low carbon, (2) Climate and Natural Environment, (3) Health and Climate and (4) Climate policy), emerging as a multidisciplinary field that explores the contribution of cities to global warming and the ecological, political, social and economic implications of climate change at the local scale.
The Scientific Director of BC3 Prof. Maria José Sanz has been selected as a member of the Editorial Board (Land Use, Land-Use Change and Forestry Sector) of the Emission Factor Database (EFDB) for the coming 4 years (2016-2019).
In November 2015, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) invited governments and international organizations to nominate experts to serve on the Editorial Board of the EFDB and Prof. Maria José Sanz was selected.
