Carbon smart forestry under climate change

CARE4C - Carbon smart forestry under climate change
H2020-MSCA-RISE-2017, Grant Agreement Number 778322)

EU Horizon 2020EU Logo
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 778322


In a changing climate, we see the challenge that forestry needs to contribute to a low carbon-emitting society. Whilst forests sequester carbon, they simultaneously release carbon during forest operations. Our ambition is to arrive at an integrated picture of carbon sink and source and to adapt forest management for different climate and forest management regimes.
In our project, we will develop carbon smart forest management systems for adaptation and mitigation in the view of climate change.
