Towards an International Research Consortium on Soil Organic Carbon – CIRCASA Final Event

TimeLoc
10 February 2021
online
The final online event of the CIRCASA project brought together over 230 participants from across the globe to explore the strategic research agenda and take steps towards an international research consortium on soil organic carbon. The research consortium's aim is to strengthen collaboration among researchers and stakeholders to better support the scaling up of beneficial soil management for maintaining and enhancing soil carbon stocks. The effort builds on CIRCASA's three-year work of reviewing the state-of-the-art on research and gathering stakeholders' views on barriers, solutions and knowledge gaps.Read more

EU Framework for CO2 Removals – Targets and Commitments

The new EU climate architecture should include a separate CDR target that builds primarily on restoring degraded ecosystems. This target should be legally binding and quantified – for the EU and Member States. It should not be a combined target which treats reductions and CDRs equally. This EU's CDR target should be enshrined in the European Climate Law.Read more

Improving International Soil Governance

Analysis and recommendations
This research report by Ecologic Institute identifies ways in which Germany can improve international soil governance in the short, medium and long term. It begins with an inventory of existing international instruments and institutions relevant to soil governance at the international level. It assesses the actual and potential steering effects of international treaties such as the Convention to Combat Desertification, the Convention on Biological Diversity, the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the climate regime as well as regional agreements. It also analyses the activities of FAO, UNEP, IPBES and the activities of the IPCC.Read more

Synthesis Report on Knowledge Demands and Needs of Stakeholders

Soils matter: We depend on soil health for our food and their condition is also closely linked to our ability to respond to the climate crisis. World soils contain a stock of about 1,500-2,500 gigatons of organic carbon, which is more than three times the amount of carbon in the atmosphere. Their degradation entails the risk of emitting large amounts of carbon, as well as undermining both soil fertility and food security. At the same time, sustainable management of soils can sequester carbon, while simultaneously supporting valuable ecosystem services and food security.Read more

Optimal Soil Management to Ensure Yield Capacity

TimeLoc
18 June 2019
Moltzow
Germany
In June 2019, the stakeholder workshop "Optimal soil management to ensure yield capacity & acceptance analysis of measures to upgrade the subsoil" of the BMBF-funded BonaRes project "Soil³ - Sustainable Subsoil Management" took place in Moltzow (Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania). This workshop is part of a series of workshops with the aim to discuss and gather the prevailing opinions on subsoil management measures with the help of an acceptance analysis. Ecologic Institute researchers discussed with farmers and other ecological actors under which conditions they would implement or support these measures.Read more
