The Solution is Social: How and why to work with the human dimension in climate change research
BC3 Seminars "The Solution is Social: How and why to work with the human dimension in climate change research " Dr. Julia Leventon Head of the…
Tree species mixing as a strategy for adaptation to climate change
Forest ecosystems are more and more threaten by the increasing biotic and abiotic disturbances triggered by global change. Adapting forest systems to climate change while maintaining their mitigation capacity is the main challenge to achieve a climate smart forestry.
Ecosystem Components of Urbanization in the Context of a Changing Climate
Urbanization is a major driver of global ecological changes. At the same time, ecological dynamics have a substantial impact on urban residents, which includes more than half of the worldwide population. To explore the reciprocal interactions between urbanization and ecological processes I use the Los Angeles, USA megacity region as a case study.
Cumbre sobre cambio climático 2022 (COP27): ¿Qué hay de nuevo?
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.
The Lancet Countdown 2022 report on climate change and health – BC3 webinar
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
Recent and ongoing research activities on spatial analysis of climate change impacts and adaptation
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.
Decarbonisation for net zero
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 [...]
AdaptaBrasil: Innovative Platform for Monitoring Climate Change
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.
BC3 Seminar – The Urban Green Divide or Segregating by Greening
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.
