Abstract

Meeting the targets of the Paris Climate Agreement and the European Green Deal will require reducing net greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2050. Besides reduced emissions, active CO2 sequestration which at the same time ensures biodiversity conservation, will also be needed,
WILDCARD will assess, for the first time in Europe, the potential impact of both natural afforestation of abandoned agricultural land and of set-aside strategies in existing forests on in situ carbon sequestration and biodiversity at multiple spatial and temporal scales.
