LANDMARC

The LANDMARC project will enhance our understanding of the realistic potential of land-based negative emission solutions in agriculture, forestry and other land use sectors.

Active project

2020–2024

Land-based negative emission solutions are expected to play a pivotal role in future climate actions and policy scenarios. To date most climate actions have focused on phasing out fossil fuels and reducing greenhouse gas emissions in, for example, industry, electricity and transport. While zero emission trajectories in these sectors will remain a priority for decades to come, it is expected that some residual GHG emissions will remain. To be able to fulfil the Paris Agreement and meet the world’s climate goals research, policy and markets are increasingly looking at land-based negative emission solutions.

The research methods will include:

  • A mix of earth observation technologies, to be able to (better) monitor and estimate the effectiveness of land-based negative emission solutions
  • A suite of climate, land-use, and economic simulation models, to better estimate the true (scaling) potential of land-based negative emission solutions, both from an earth systems and human systems perspective
  • A social sciences-based approach for effective impact assessment and engagement with local and regional stakeholders – across 14 countries and 5 continents – that are already work on implementing negative emission solutions.

Land-use based mitigation technologies have a key role in global efforts to meet the aims of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The approach taken in LANDMARC provides a more comprehensive assessment of quantifiable and non-quantifiable environmental, and socio-economic trade-offs and co-benefits of Land-use based mitigation technologies.

The project runs from 2020 to 2024 and has a consortium of nineteen partners. Visit the project consortium website for details and updates: https://www.landmarc2020.eu/.

LANDMARC receives funding from the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement number 869367.
