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).

Les terres del Trentino, Alto Adige i Veneto són molt boscoses i la fusta es talla, es porta al peu dels camins per més endavant ésser transportada a serradores i després la veus a les cases, les estacions de tren, els ponts...M’encanta veure fusta arreu @serradoraboix @boscat
