Advancing soil carbon sequestration more efficiently through international cooperation
The main goal of the project is to strengthen the impact and visibility of Finnish soil know-how, the networking of experts in the field nationally and internationally, and cooperation with key international networks. The project builds strongly on existing national and international networks, projects, and events – raising awareness of these, building cooperation and synergies, new opportunities, funding opportunities, and impact.
As a result of the project, Finland’s and Carbon Action’s cooperation with the 4/1000 initiative in particular will be intensified. The most visible is the 4/1000 Northern Europe event to be held in 2023, together with the 4/1000 initiative. Finland takes its place as a pioneer in promoting carbon sequestration in agricultural land, and at the same time strongly promotes the international networking of Finnish researchers and other actors.
The project generates visibility for work in the field of soil carbon sequestration MRV
Through events and other activities, the project will promote solutions for the promotion of Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) work, carbon market mechanisms, user-friendly tools for carbon sequestration monitoring, regenerative soil management, soil monitoring, certification, climate solutions for peatlands and citizen participation. The project also promotes the coordination of biodiversity and climate measures.
BSAG is responsible for project management, coordination, communication, event organization and participation, and interaction. The Finnish Meteorological Institute is responsible for scientific cooperation and coordination with the 4/1000 initiative. EJP SOIL program / EJP SOIL National Hub is a key collaborator.
