Tree orchards can act as an important sink for CO2 and hence contributes significant to climate change mitigation due to their ability to serve as a carbon pool. This mitigation potential depends on the cultivation and management practices.
In order to explore the mitigation potentials of orchards the LIFE CLIMATREE project attempts to:
LIFE CLIMATREE demonstrates the important, still ignored, mitigation potentials of tree cultivations.
Tree cultivations are significant for farmers, rural development, social cohesion, biodiversity, climate. Their contribution is investigated by LIFE CLIMATREE with specific relevance in the conditions of the Mediterranean. Under the restrictions imposed by the coronavirus epidemic the final conference of LIFE CLIMATREE will take place at 22 October 2020 as a virtual event in collaboration with the Greek Green Fund.
