BioSTEP Research Recommendations
Stakeholder and public engagement are key elements of EU policy development, as well as of responsible research and innovation.

The BioSTEP research recommendations are available for download.Read more

EU Climate Policies: friend, foe or bystander to forest restoration and carbon sinks?

EU Climate Governance for restoring degraded forests
Next to steep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions, the removal of CO2 from the atmosphere is essential to keep average global temperature increases to 1.5°C, and well below 2°C. At this point in time, there is effectively only one realistic and sustainable way to help remove large amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere: restoring degraded forests. A strong and reliable governance framework is a pre-condition to restore degraded forests at the necessary scale. A new Ecologic paper discusses how to design such a governance framework for the EU. The paper is available for download.Read more
