Zero Emissions from Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use in the Eisenwurzen and Beyond (ZEAFOLU)

The target of 2°C, and even more so, the ambitious 1.5°C target, which are fundamental climate protection goals of the 2015 Paris agreement, require a massive reduction in global greenhouse gas emissions until 2050 and complete decarbonization by 2100. A transition to a low-carbon society will necessitate a fundamental reorganization of the current societal metabolism, that is, the flow of material and energy associated with socioeconomic activities. Such a transformation calls for a re-evaluation of land use management practices to achieve zero emissions from agriculture, forestry and other land use (ZEAFOLU). More

COIN: Assessing Costs of Climate Change in Austria

This project is funded by the ERC Consolidator Grant. It assesses the potential of using crowdsourcing to close big data gaps of ground sourced data on land cover, land use and change. The project builds on the Geo-Wiki crowdsourcing tool and moves from an online environment to a mobile ground-based collection system. More
