LIFE FOREST CO2
END DATE: December 2019
CLIENT: LIFE programme (European Commission)
This is achieved through increasing knowledge at the local level and by using an integrated practical approach that encompasses all sectors involved (including those responsible for emission compensation). Also, by enhancing the value of the those sectors.
One of the work lines in the project is the modelisation of carbon sequestration as a consequence of activities of Sustainable Forest Management (pruning, thinning, clearing etc.) in Pinus halepensis Mill. and Pinus pinaster Aiton forests in Spain and France, which considers the broad spectrum of carbon deposits —biomass (aerial and below ground), organic matter in the soil and deadwood— using calculations that are recognised internationally (IPCC) but adapted to the local scale.
