Technical Results Update

Latest update

The project is in line with the objectives foreseen for this period. Monitoring actions are running as expected, following the protocols defined in the initial phase. The five carbon pools (above and below-ground biomass, litter soil and deadwood) (action D1) and the GHG emissions (action D2) are continuously monitored on 18 sub-plots for each site. Action D3 is running to manage the carbon credits generated by the project and key stakeholders’ identification were identified in order to involve them in the future activities of the governance of the project.
A large effort has been put on dissemination actions: 17 technical and scientific papers have been published (Action E5), partners participated to 6 events (Actions E6, E8, E10) and diffusion to institution and policy makers was implemented (Action E9). We also applied to transfer and replicate the project approach in other areas.
