GHG Europe

Policy relevant Objectives

  • Integrate research supported by national and European programmes via improved access to data, tools and knowledge (WP7) and through the involvement of scientists from parallel research projects in data synthesis (WP2, WP3) and model intercomparison (WP4, WP5).
  • Provide an integrated analysis of critical vulnerabilities of the terrestrial carbon sink, carbon pools and GHG fluxes in Europe and of critical changes in driver combinations, in a spatially explicit way and aggregated by country, land use sectors and ecosystem types (WP3, WP4, WP5, WP6).
  • Develop tools and perform integrated assessments of feedbacks between European post-2012 climate and land use policies (WP6).
  • Give direct scientific and technical advice through bidirectional interactions with governments, negotiators and other stakeholders about the potential role of terrestrial ecosystems in a post-2012 regime, associated risks and economic implications via participation in the post-2012 negotiations, an IPCC type of synthesis report and regular policy briefings (WP6, WP8).
