Highlights of this summit will be analysed, including the agreements adopted, progress made and pending issues from the perspective of multiple actors: academia, the public sector, and the private sector.
BC3 is pleased to invite you to an online seminar on November 10, at 11.00 am CET that will present the main highlights of the freshly-released 2022 Europe report of the Lancet Countdown – an international research collaboration that brings together 120 leading experts to monitor how the world’s changing climate is impacting public health.
Empirical evidence on the importance of considering equity in incentive based policy instruments for ecosystem services provision
Incentive-based policy instruments, such as Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) and Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES), are at the forefront of global efforts to meet conservation and land use based emissions reduction goals. REDD+ and PES are primarily perceived as instruments aimed at addressing environmental degradation. I
I will provide a few examples of research activities sharing the same aim of extracting knowledge from climate modelling to inform and orient human activities, such as planning and investments. The examples have in common a spatially explicit approach and they adopt vaious sorts of data processing and modelling: from simple formulas of map algebra, to multi-criteria analysis, or agent based modelling.
The world is committed to the temperature target in the Paris Agreement to keep global warming well below 2oC, aiming for 1.5oC. This will require rapid reductions of emissions of GHGs, leading to net-zero emissions by mid-century. The seminar will explore the economics of such a transition to low- or zero-carbon energy sources, in respect of the investments that will be required and the [...]
Sustainable development and climate mitigation and adaptation in a country the size of Brazil presents enormous challenges regarding the environmental, social, and productivity sectors. Climate risk is based on the characterization of the social and natural systems linked to vulnerability and exposure to a given hazard.
In the past two decades, cities in the Global North and South have invested in urban greening projects such as parks, gardens, greenways, or green climate resilient infrastructure to address a variety of environmental, health, economic, and social challenges. Such interventions are often accompanied by large scale real estate projects.
BC3 Webinar: Artificial Intelligence applied to ocean waves forecast: A deep learning approach to predict significant wave height.
Better predictions of ocean waves conditions are essential for a handful of industries that define its operations based on the outcome of these analysis. Almost all engineering applications that happens in the ocean, from transportation to renewable energies, going across offshore platforms and alerts of catastrophic events, not to mention geosciences research benefits from an accurate description of sea state.
El seminario “Perspectiva de género y diversidad en la organización” que está impulsado por la comisión de igualdad de BC3 – Basque Centre for Climate Change, vinculado a la iniciativa Visiting Program, tiene como objetivo construir una visión más equitativa, diversa e inclusiva de nuestra realidad científica y obtener resultados transformadores para nuestro desarrollo personal y profesional.
For the last two decades we have been spinning around the same problem with maladaptation – we know what it is, but we rarely know when it is happening in real time. Most examples of maladaptation are only detected after the fact when it is too late to prevent them from doing damage. Still we are fascinated by this concept. This talk addresses maladaptation [...]
