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).

Quan el foc s’apaga, comença la feina per tal de regenerar la massa forestal per tal que aquell bosc torni a renéixer de les seves cendres. Aquesta és una de les actuacions que s’emmarquen dins del projecte @lifeclimark

Els companys de @ProjecteBoscos han obert inscripcions per aquest estiu quan, de ben segur, el #coronavirus haurà remès ☀️🤞🏻Viuràs 1 setmana de feina de la bona en plena natura, mimant el bosc i la muntanya.

🚘 La contaminació a Barcelona cau de mitjana un 60% la primera setmana d'estat d'alarma pel #CoronaVirus

https://www.totbarcelona.cat/societat/contaminacio-barcelona-cau-mitjana-60-setmana-alarma_2117609102.html

Les sequeres cada cop seran més intenses i freqüents. Apostar per una gestió forestal multifuncional serà una gran eina per dotar als boscos d’opcions per tal de superar aquesta mena d’adversitats climàtiques.

Els experts en el Clima ens indiquen que l’any 2040 Catalunya disposarà d’un 20% menys d’aigua 💧i d’un 15/20% menys de pluja 🌧. Adaptar els boscos per tal que consumeixin menys recursos hídrics com proposem a @lifeclimark serà clau.
