Seminar on “Performance assessment of forest-based climate change mitigation initiatives”

The central role of forests in climate change mitigation efforts makes it important to evaluate these forest-based efforts in terms of carbon effectiveness and social synergies and trade-offs. The aim of the seminar is to present and discuss different perspectives on performance assessment of forest-based climate change mitigation initiatives. The workshop precedes the PhD thesis defence of Astrid Bos at 16:00h that same day. You are also invited to attend the public defence of the thesis in the Aula.
