CIRCASA project will participate in the Bonn Climate Change conference on the 26th June 2019 at 18h30 in BONN Room

The 50th sessions of the UNFCCC Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) and Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) will convene in Bonn, Germany, from 17-27 June 2019. The Bonn Climate Change conference will address numerous implementation issues under the Convention, the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement.

The SB will address issues related to the NDCs including the soil carbon sequestration as a priority for adaptation

Topic: "Enhancing NDC ambition through soil organic carbon sequestration"

A science-policy dialog on why and where ambition for soil organic carbon should be enhanced and the issues countries face in enhancing ambition.


Country representatives and experts will discuss the potential of soil organic carbon sequestration as a climate change mitigation option and the gap between countries’ current and potential commitments.

Scientists will present an analysis of current and potential soil carbon commitments in countries' Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and the growing body of evidence on the benefits of soil carbon for agriculture and slowing desertification. Representatives of Brazil, the European Commission, and Indonesia will discuss challenges for maintaining and increasing sequestration of soil organic carbon for climate change mitigation, soil health and improved productivity, and they will make recommendations for enhancing ambition and implementation. The World Bank will discuss avenues of support for climate change adaptation and mitigation and how soil organic carbon fits in that context.

Our aim is to help countries with the potential to increase or protect existing soil organic carbon identify soil organic carbon targets in their NDCs and build the finance, technology, and implementation systems to support ambitious implementation.
