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.
Maintain and improve the mitigation capacity of Mediterranean Europe’s forests.
Design a local climate credit market as a tool for promoting multifunctional forest management.
Raise awareness, train and provide tools to all stakeholders interested in compensating CO2 emissions through climate credits.
