    1. 1. OECC, 28de Julio ,2014(Madrid) Alberto Sanz Cobeña (UPM), Agustin del Prado (BC3), David Yañez (CSIC), Jorge Alvaro Fuentes (CSIC), Fernando Estellés (UPV)
    2. 2. • What is Remedia? • Why was Remedia created? • What are the objectives of Remedia? • How is Remedia structured? • Achieved goals by Remedia • Future challenges of Remedia
    3. 3. What is Remedia? Scientific Network on GHG mitigation from the agroforestry sector (agriculture, livestock and forestry) in Spain
    4. 4. Why was Remedia created? The role of agriculture in global GHG emissions Audsley et al. (2009) 22%
    5. 5. Source:Bellarbyetal.2008(Greenpeace) Sources of GHG in global agriculture
    6. 6. GHG emission from agriculture in each world region Vermeulen et al., 2012 Land Use Changes
    7. 7. In the case of Spain… Contribution to GHG emission in Spain by sectors Energy production 79% Agriculture 10% Industrial processes 8% Wastes management 3% Others 0% Year 2011
    8. 8. Footprint of agricultural production 6% 17% 3% 16%15% 43% N2O-outsideSpain Energy Energy-outsideSpain Landuse changes outsideSpain CH4-agriculture N2O-agriculture Example: 1 L of milk in the Basque Country
    9. 9. Objectives of Remedia To allow a framework where scientists can develop efforts and cooperate with other social agents under the overarching umbrella of the general Spanish Low Carbon Development Strategy. – To Synthesise, integrate and inform about existing scientific evidence in Spain on strategies of GHG mitigation in the agroforestry sector. – To enhance synergies, dissemination and knowledge transfer at different levels – To enhance exchange of information and excellence amongst researchers from a multidisciplinary approach – To identify and propose specific scientific initiatives focused on mitigation and adaptation of agroforestry systems to climate change – To interact with other research networks. – To cooperate with Policy Makers and private sector: e.g. MAGRAMA – To promote international collaborations

    13. 13. Structure of Remedia: Communication & Dissemination Network Blog: 440 registered WEB: 24 institutions LINKEDIN YOUTUBE
    14. 14. 14 Some participant institutions…
    15. 15. Achieved Goals (2012-2014) • 3 national workshops (≈ 100 participants) • Since 2012: diffusion tools (e.g. blog, ≈ 400 reg.) • 2014: Special Issue in the scientific journal “Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies for Global Change” • Coordinated national & international projects • Collaborative research papers • Official registration as Foundation
    16. 16. National workshops Bilbao (2012) Zaragoza (2013) Valencia (2014)
    17. 17. Special Issue: Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies for Global Change Greenhouse gas mitigation in the agricultural sector in Spain: 11 papers selected from the II Remedia Workshop (Zaragoza, 2013)
    18. 18. Future Challenges: Continue with the internationalization of Remedia… …through our workshops. France (INRA) Holland (WUR) J.F. Soussana Julio Mosquera UK (RR) Laura Cárdenas Next Remedia Workshop. Madrid (23-25 March 2015) “Opening Remedia”
    19. 19. Future Challenges: Continue with the internationalization of Remedia… …through the blog & other dissemination initiatives
    20. 20. Potential collaborations with Vietnam • Promote and advise in the creation of a similar Vietnamese initiative (if there is not any) • Collaborative research projects (field measurements, modelling, etc.) • Research network for Vietnamese-Spanish researchers (e.g. supporting travelling and research stays, etc.) • Establish links with Spanish Speaking countries (e.g. Latin America) • others
