Sign up for the seminar “Landscapes in a carbon focused world” on the 26th of October!

An updated program for the seminar, organized by SIANI, Focali, GMV and Naturskyddsföreningen, is now available.

Seminar date: 26th October 2012 from 10.00-15.00 
Location: Conference Centre Wallenberg, Medicinaregatan 20 A, Göteborg
Lunch is included! 
 
The ‘landscape’ view has risen in importance within discussions on sustainability, resilience, improved agriculture and climate change. This is particularly evident in large parts of the developing world where landscapes are heterogenic in character and the sectorial divisions of agricultural, pastoral and forestry land use are less evident. We will look at the role a landscape focus has for improving research, policy and practice. The seminar will especially look at the landscape approach from a carbon perspective. The presentations will cover different aspects ranging from experiences of measuring carbon in the landscape to implementation of programmes to promote agro-forestry and to improve livelihoods which at the same time store carbon in the landscape.
