What is this project trying to achieve?
The "Operation CO2" is part of the European Union's LIFE + program. It's main objective is to demonstrate the viability of forestry and agroforestry projects on carbon sequestration in Europe. Although not yet developed in Europe, these projects could contribute significantly to the fight against climate change. Over the life of the project, we will aim for
- The conservation and management of forests and carbon, and
- Integrated agroforestry practices,
both with new methods that are technically and economically viable.
The project will be carried out in three different regions of Spain and with a multinational team of 9 partners from three Member States (Spain, Netherlands, United Kingdom) of the EU.
