BC3 Seminar: ” Credible, effective and publicly acceptable policies to decarbonise the European Union”

This seminar investigates the extent to which current policies and institutional arrangements are fit for purpose for the new decarbonisation phase into which the EU is entering. It summarises the main findings from the Statkraft research programme, ‘“Fit-for-purpose” energy and climate change mitigation policies for the European Union’, completed in December 2017.

BC3 Seminar: “Plural values of nature – the means determine the end”

Research on nature-society interactions if a very broad field involving many specialisms and disciplinary schools. From a values perspective, conflicts occur when values of different groups are traded off: economic development versus indigenous culture, profit farming versus landscape heritage.

BC3 Seminar: What is the future of the Paramos in a warmer world?

Climate models predict that the temperature will increase between 2 and 5 ° C over the next 50 years impacting ecosystems, biodiversity, and carbon dynamics. Of particular interest are high mountain ecosystems such as Páramo that stores large amounts of organic carbon in their soil and are home to many endemic species vulnerable to climate change. An increase in temperature in this ecosystem could accelerate the decomposition of organic matter in the soil and thus increase the release of carbon, which in turn could feed back the greenhouse effect and help to increase the global temperature
