LIFE Wetlands4Climate Online Networking Event

December 23, 2021
An online workshop to share objectives, methodologies and results obtained by different experts and projects on issues related to the carbon cycle, greenhouse gas fluxes, and climate change mitigation in epicontinental aquatic ecosystems. LIFE wetlands4Climate partners introduced  the methodology and progress achieved with the  project so far, as well as in other projects developed by the partners, remarking the Role of Mediterranean wetlands in C & GHG-exchanges.
 

Networking events of this kind are useful to join efforts in order to bring the results of this research to decision-makers and serve as input for the generation of public policies.
