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.
Atmospheric carbon dioxide enrichment (eCO2) can enhance plant carbon uptake and growth, thereby providing an important negative feedback to climate change by slowing the rate of increase of the atmospheric CO2 concentration. Although evidence gathered from young aggrading forests has generally indicated a strong CO2 fertilization effect on biomass growth, it is unclear whether mature forests respond to eCO2 in a similar way.
This time of a global health crisis, Marta Olazabal, BC3-Basque Centre for Climate Change Research Fellow and AXA Research Fund Postdoctoral Fellow, and Sarah Colenbrander from World Resources Institute, write an opinion article on climate change and the COVID-19 crisis and how this can be addressed in cities.Olazabal and Colenbrander's article deal with the critical point that this situation cost to cities and the new investment to handle it.
