LAnd MAnagement for CLImate Mitigation and Adaptation (LAMACLIMA)


The project aims to investigate how changes in land cover and land management can help to meet the mitigation and adaptation objectives of the Paris Agreement, as well as the Sustainable Development Goals. The project partners' findings will be disseminated through a number of tools, events and products and by closely involving stakeholders and policy-makers, with the aim to support sustainable land use decision-making.

The research outcomes will be synthesised into an open-access and user-friendly tool, allowing appropriate dissemination to other researchers. The tool will be an emulator, i.e., a simplified model displaying the interactions between land cover and land management (LCLM), the climate system, food production, water scarcity and the economy uncovered by the LAMACLIMA research activities.

The consortium otherwise includes experts on the interactions between LCLM and climate who will run a coordinated set of experiments with several Earth System models, economists who will integrate these results into a Computable General Equilibrium model and an agro-economic model. The project will complement on-going international research efforts such as the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project 6 (CMIP6).
