Objectives

To make CAMELs output available in a form suitable to both inform policy discussions and other interested scientific groups, through construction of website with a layered structure and through a policy-makers brochure summarising the second year annual report and the final report.  To provide further reports and general advice on carbon sinks to EU policy makers as requested.

Work description

Construct project website with a layered structure suitable for use by both scientific experts and policy makers.

Regularly update the website to allow access to the latest scientific findings of the project, along with source sof data and relevant documents.

Provide coordinated project input to the Member states and scientific bodies (eg: IPCC, IGBP)

Upon request, give ad hoc consultation to the Commission on issues concerning current land carbon sinks and sink permanence.

Produce policy-maker summaries of each annual report, which should be suitable for distribution at relevant policy discussions (eg: UNFCCC Conference of the Parties)

Deliverables:

D5.1 Project website with a layered structure.
D5.2 Online and ad hoc consultation to the European Commission.
D5.3 Report on the estimation of the contemporary land carbon sink and its causes.

Milestones:

Month 3 Project website constructed
Month 24  2nd Year annual report plus brochure containing a policy-makers summary.
Month 36  Final report plus brochure containing policy-makers summary.
