We live on an urban planet, one that will become even more urban in coming decades. The polycrisis of biodiversity loss and climate change is interacting dynamically with urbanization creating a locus of impact both by, and on, cities and urbanized regions.

Co-producing adaptation knowledge for improved decision support

How to best connect adaptation science and practice? In January the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) will host a session on insights and lessons learned related to good practice co-produced climate services for improved adaptation planning and decision-making.

COP28: key outcomes and what next

This seminar organized at Donostia Sustainability Forum next 1st of February at 6.00pm at Miramar Palace will explore the main results of the Dubai summit, as well as the key issues that we can expect in the future with the help of María José Sanz, scientific director of the Basque Centre for Climate Change, BC3.

Forests that warm the earth and herbivores that cool it. How is biodiversity crisis affecting the climate?

The biodiversity and global fire crisis have become a major concern. In the Mediterranean, woody vegetation has historically been grazed. To test the use of extensive livestock as a tool for changing the structure and composition of vegetation, we reintroduced herds in afforested areas.

Transformative innovation policy for a social and environmental sustainability

BC3-Basque Centre for Climate Change Sede Building 1, 1st floor, Scientific Park of the University of the Basque Country, Leioa, Bizkaia, Spain

This seminar we aim to create the arena for the debate on what to adapt, what to conserve, how to reduce landscape vulnerabilities to adapt to climate change. We think this seminar would be for special interests for those researchers working on SO 3 and 4 and want to find convergences, but also for every research that is based in the Basque Country and want to understand better the interconnections between humans and landscape in the long run.

Human action and landscape transformation in the estuaries of the Basque coast: contributions from Archeology

How can the proposed adaptation strategies necessarily impact populations in terms of positive changes to their lifestyles? The Centre de Suivi Ecologique (CSE) and the University of Gaston Berger (UGB) in Senegal, based on science and traditional ecological knowledge (TEK), are working to offer data, products and services that facilitate transformational change.

National pathways and policy packages to low-greenhouse gas development in the land use sector

BC3-Basque Centre for Climate Change Sede Building 1, 1st floor, Scientific Park of the University of the Basque Country, Leioa, Bizkaia, Spain

This presentation will first focus on low-GHG development pathways for agriculture, forestry and land use (AFOLU) in Brazil, India and Indonesia, developed together with in-country research teams in the respective country. Specifically, it will present an analysis of the importance of the AFOLU sector for national emission reductions and the respective drivers of transformation in AFOLU in the three countries. Second, we will explore how to draw policy implications from the pathways, and the first steps towards the definition of a framework for the analysis of policy packages in AFOLU will be presented.

`Artistic Resilience´: Transdisciplinary collaborations and Collective Care for Eco-Social Renewal

BC3-Basque Centre for Climate Change Sede Building 1, 1st floor, Scientific Park of the University of the Basque Country, Leioa, Bizkaia, Spain

This talk explores the concept of “Artistic Resilience” through the lens of the speaker’s experience in diverse international collaborative projects. The presentation positions artistic practice itself as a form of resilience, offering tools and questions for rebuilding a more balanced relationship with the environment and society.

Looking ahead to the future of academic publishing: supporting research communities to maximise impact

BC3-Basque Centre for Climate Change Sede Building 1, 1st floor, Scientific Park of the University of the Basque Country, Leioa, Bizkaia, Spain

In this seminar, Jamie will discuss how the publishing landscape is evolving in response to internal and external pressures, the way publishers are engaging with AI (reactively and proactively), new publisher business models, and the future of Open Science. He will also briefly introduce PLOS Climate as a mission-led, multidisciplinary venue for climate research, and explain opportunities to be involved in the journal’s growing community.
