The participation of ERAIFT in the Hybrid Meeting organized by ICOS-HO at the European Parliament (Brussels) on "Nature-based solutions to increase carbon sinks on land"

ERAIFT participated online on the 21st September 2023 in a meeting organized by ICOS (Integrated Carbon Observation System), a European infrastructure dedicated to the understanding of the carbon cycle and greenhouse gases impact on climate change, at the European Parliament (Brussels) - a meeting on « Nature-based solutions to increase carbon sinks on land ». This event, hosted by MEP Elsi Katainen, Vice-Chair of the European Parliament Intergroup on "Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development"; has witness the participation of more than 200 participants worldwide. The event aims at raising awareness of the scientific opportunities and challenges behind a reliable evaluation of nature-based carbon removals. The combined roles of observation data, models and inventories were highlighted through scientific presentations including: - “Carbon action 2018-2023 : Learning food production, soil and environment – Across the soil and sky”; - “How to make nature-based solutions for carbon removal on land a success for climate, environment and farmers”; - “Towards a Unified Estimation (MRV) System for Land Carbon and Greenhouse Gas Fluxes: The Importance of Integrating Field and Satellite Measurements with Modeling”. These themes were the subject of exchanges enriched by experts among which – the Head of Unit ‘Low Carbon Solutions: Land Economy & Carbon Removals’, DG CLIMA, European Commission; - the Policy Officer, DG AGRI, European Commission; - the Head of Climate & Energy, WWF; - and the Director of Regulatory Affairs, Coillte, EUSTAFOR Member.

ERAIFT thanks ICOS-HO for the invitation to this event of great international importance. And also expresses its gratitude to the European Union and AGRINATURA for the resources made available to participate.
