Deutsch-französisches Symposium für Klimawandel, Agrarkultur und Forstwirtschaft

Zeitraum: 07.05.2014 Ort: Berlin Land: Deutschland

The Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), COP 21, will be hosted in Paris in late 2015. This Event is foreseen as an important step in the negotiation process on climate. Indeed, a binding agreement for 2020 involving all developing, emerging and developed countries is expected.

In this context the Science & Technology Department at the French Embassy in Berlin and its partners: Max Planck Institute in Jena (Germany) and INRA in Paris (France) organize a bilateral symposium Climate change, agriculture and forestry, as one of the preparation events before COP 21 in Paris. The Symposium aims at stimulating relevant expertise and enhancing the exchange of recent scientific knowledge.

The following topics will be covered: Forestry, Climate, Agriculture, Carbon cycle, Greenhouse gases, Ecosystem services, Bio-economy and Biosphere Modelling.
