Carbon sinks and land use planning

The next webinar for the Metropolitan Climate Challenge Expert Group will take place on 5 October, 10-12 CET with the following topic:

According to recent data, the carbon sink targets set for the EU’s land use, land-use change and forestry sector (LULUCF) are falling short. What is the role of metropolitan areas in securing and increasing carbon sinks in the land use sector? In this webinar, we focus on the possibilities of promoting carbon sinks and storages in land use planning.

We discuss, among other things, what kind of means increase both carbon sequestration and promote adaptation to climate change. We will also hear examples of how the effects of land use on carbon sinks and storages are taken into account in regional land use planning.
