Next Monday, 20 May, the headquarters of the Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge (MITECO) will host the presentation of the eco2for project, which BISITE is part of along with five other entities. Over the next two years, the project will work on a series of improvements in forest management, with the aim of innovating and expanding the tools for climate change mitigation.

To this end, this project has the support of the Biodiversity Foundation of the Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge (MITECO), within the framework of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan (PRTR), financed by the European Union - NextGenerationEU.

Next Monday's seminar (to be held in MITECO's assembly hall, from 10:30 am to 6:00 pm) will present this initiative, which aims to highlight the role of the forestry sector in combating climate change. The contribution of eco2for will involve significant forestry-related actions that will attract private investment and promote economic development in rural areas, especially those affected by depopulation.

The meeting (free to attend after signing up here) will not only serve to unveil this project, but it will also act as a monographic seminar at which to analyze the current situation of the value chain of forest carbon sinks and to promote collaboration in this emerging value chain.

All these aspects may be of particular interest to a wide range of actors interested in sustainable forest management and climate change mitigation, such as public administrations, companies and entities in the forest carbon sink value chain, specialists from universities and innovation and research centres, as well as society in general. The programme is available here.

The consortium created to implement the eco2for project is formed by the Forum on Forests and Climate Change (as coordinating partner), together with the BISITE Research Group from USAL, the Cesefor Foundation, the CETEMAS Foundation, the National Institute for Agricultural and Food Research and Technology of CSIC (INIA-CIFOR), USAL-BISITE (BISITE Research Group of the University of Salamanca) and UVA-CAMBIUM (Cambium Research Group of the University of Valladolid).
