We offer scientific evidence, objectivity and knowledge on a global scale to inform policy makers decisions. Our multidisciplinary vision connected with good practices throughout the world is a solid accompaniment for the implementation of complex actions.
One of our relevant contributions to the EU policy making process is taking part in the UNFCCC Side Events. These were established as a platform for observer organizations to highlight diverse climate change issues at UNFCCC conferences, and are a vital component of the UNFCCC sessions, as they provide opportunities for information dissemination, capacity building, policy discussions and a way to legitimize global governance.
BC3 is recognized by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) as a Non-Governmental Organization and we have contributed to several side events at the Conferences of the Parties jointly with other leading Climate Change scientific and policy institutions.
BC3 has been playing an active role in these COPS.
BC3 Scientific Director, María José Sanz, participate as co-chair, at the GFOI Plenary 2019 held in Maputo, Mozambique, from 8-11 April 2019. The objective of the The Global Forest Observations Initiative (GFOI) is an informal partnership to coordinate international support to developing countries on forest monitoring and MRV procedures for REDD+ and related activities. Through collaborative action, GFOI aims to provide a larger and more targeted package of support than any one partner can provide alone.
BC3 Scientific director María José Sanz took part at the "key systems models, links and gaps and development options"workshop. In the context of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on 1.5°C, the JPI Climate Action Group "GHG emissions, removals and management systems" organised a workshop on 27-28 March 2019, in Brussels, with the aim to explore the state of play of key models (central to the provision of analysis of the drivers of climate change and response options to achieve policy goals as established in the Paris Agreement), including how models are linked and gaps that may exist between them.
Dentro de la "Semana del Cambio Climático" de Euskadi se ha celebrado la Conferencia Internacional de Cambio Climático 2019 “Change the Change” en San Sebastián, con el objetivo de movilizar a la ciudadanía hacia el compromiso personal frente al cambio climático. Organizada por el Departamento de Medio Ambiente, Planificación Territorial y Vivienda del Gobierno Vasco, Ministerio para la Transición Ecológica, Diputación Foral de Gipuzkoa y Ayuntamiento de Donostia/San Sebastián, y donde BC3 a apoyado el congreso como coordinador científico, se han tratado los retos del cambio climático y se han dado a conocer las iniciativas y las acciones que se están generando para luchar contra ello.
The project Deltas, vulnerability and Climate Change; Migration as an Adaptation (DECCMA), has release a new policy brief "Climate change and the economic future of deltas in Africa and Asia". The objective of it is to explore the economics implications of climate change for the three deltas of the DECCMA project and to summarise the finds for the Business as Usual scenario, without climate change, with climate change, and with climate change and adaptation.
Nicolás Gonzalez, investigador de BC3 - Basque Centre for Climate Change, afronta el reto del proyecto transdisciplinar BALELUR, que permitirá comprobar y sensibilizar sobre los efectos del cambio climático en la región del Karakorum. Gonzalez, junto con el equipo del alpinista Alex Txikon, realizará el trabajo de campo, incluyendo comunicaciones, entrevistas, mediciones geofísicas y recogida de muestras de nieve y de suelo a diferentes alturas.
