Promotion of forest management for climate change mitigation

through the design of a local Climate Credit market

Background

European forests play a crucial role in carbon balances, with an impact on climate change mitigation of around 13% of total EU emissions, mainly as a result of their sink capacity, carbon fixation in forests and wood products and replacement of fossil fuels.

However, in recent years, the first symptoms of saturation in the carbon sink capacity of European forests have been observed and this situation could worsen in the medium term. To reverse this, multifunctional forest management has become a key tool.

Project actions

Project objectives

Contribute to climate change mitigation and adaptation by increasing sink capacity and the protection of carbon stocks in Mediterranean forests by promoting multifunctional management with the creation of a climate credit market.

Maintain and improve the mitigation capacity of Mediterranean Europe’s forests.

Raise awareness, train and provide tools to all stakeholders interested in compensating CO2 emissions through climate credits.

Design a local climate credit market as a tool for promoting multifunctional forest management.

Forestry treatments and areas of action

The project is performed in Catalonia, on a landscape unit scale (LU), in which the following combined adaptation/mitigation systems are applied to suit the characteristics of each LU:

• Management of forest tracts in post-fire regeneration phase (Quercus suber, Pinus halepensis, P. sylvestris, Q. faginea).

Forest management in mature forests (Q. suber, P. halepensis, P. sylvestris, P. nigra).

• Forest and agro-forest plantations.

• Management practices with an impact on soil carbon.

• Strategic management of forest fire prevention.

The project is replicated in the Veneto region (Italy).

De tot el plàstic que es produeix, només se'n recicla un 10%. Cada any es llencen al mar 10 milions de tones. La solució a aquest repte mediambiental no passa tant pel reciclatge, sinó per una disminució del consum de plàstic i altres materials.

We encourage green projects 🌲 to bet for #LIFEProgramme. Our experience has been very positive: we have received valuable support from @LIFEprogramme that has been the key of our success.

Els boscos 🌳 són essencials per a la societat. El #crèditclimàtic és 1 gran eina per assegurar-nos que són gestionats de forma eficient. Aquesta i altres reflexions van sorgir en el darrer webinar de @CEFCat, on va participar

Des de @lifeclimark estudiem com les plantes 🌱 utilitzen l'aigua 💦per per créixer i poder així emmagatzemar carboni en diferents formacions forestals representatives del context mediterrani i sota diferents tractaments i models de gestió forestal.

Forests 🌳 potentially contribute to the mitigation of climate change thanks to their impact on the global carbon cycle, that is, growing trees capture carbon from the atmosphere and store it in their trunks, branches, leaves and roots, acting as carbon sinks.
