Last month, ICOS participated to the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26. At COP26, ICOS organised a side event to discuss cross-sectoral partnerships and nature-based solutions in the ocean domain in order to reach the EU Green Deal and Paris Agreement commitments. The side event was moderated by the ICOS Ocean Thematic Centre Director Dr Richard Sanders, joined by the experts from research, higher education and private sector.
ICOS Director General, Dr Werner Kutsch also presented a poster on terrestrial carbon fluxes at the COP’s Earth Information Day, and Dr Leena Järvi, Work Package Co-Leader of the ICOS Cities project, joined the Mayors of the Nordic Cities to discuss how to construct and co-create green and resilient cities.
