BECC (Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services in a Changing Climate) is a collaboration between Lund University and University of Gothenburg. It is a strategic research that strives for a better understanding of the impacts of climate change and land use decisions on terrestrial ecosystems and biodiversity, addressing the consequences of ecosystem changes for human beings and socio-economic systems. 
 
Several Focali members will be presenting at the BECC workshop titled “NAVIGATING THE JUNGLE: Assessing the Diversity of Monitoring Approaches to Forest Carbon Stocks and Good Forest Governance”  and the Focali member Anna Nordén is one of the organisers of the workshop.
