Climate Policy and Forest Bioeconomy

Energy, Environment and Climate
Date: Tuesday, 04 December 2018 09:30 - 13:30

Venue: Résidence Palace – International Press Center

On 3-14 December 2018, the COP24 meeting takes place in Poland. It is especially important since it should agree on Guidelines how the Paris Agreement will be implemented across a wide range of issues including transparency, adaptation, emission reductions, provision of finance, capacity-building and technology. In October 2018, the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C was published. It gives a new scientific assessment of how we are doing in reaching the Paris Agreement, and most likely, what should be done to speed up the process. In October 2018, the updated EU Bioeconomy Strategy was released, indicating the strategic actions needed to boost bioeconomy development.

But how are these climate targets and policies related to bioeconomy development in the future? How can the forest bioeconomy best support the achievement of the Paris Agreement?  What does the recent science evidence say about the mitigation impacts of substituting wood-based products for fossil based products? These are some of the questions that this ThinkForest seminar will address.
