What is the realistic potential for agriculture, forestry, and other land use sectors to enhance the uptake of CO2 from the atmosphere? This question is answered by the LANDMARC research project, which officially started on the 1st of July 2020. Funded by the European Commission, the nineteen LANDMARC consortium partners are spending 2020-2024 working together to:
Land-based negative emission solutions are expected to play a pivotal role in future climate actions and policy scenarios. To date, most climate actions have focused on phasing out fossil fuels and reducing greenhouse gas emissions in, for example, industry, electricity, and transport. While zero-emission trajectories in these sectors will remain a priority for decades to come, it is expected that some residual GHG emissions will remain. To be able to fulfill the Paris Agreement and meet the world’s climate goals research, policy and markets are increasingly looking at land-based negative emission solutions.
The LANDMARC project enhances our understanding in the area by providing better estimates of the realistic potential of land-based negative emission solutions in agriculture, forestry, and other land use sectors.

The LANDMARC project is actively seeking collaboration with fellow research projects operating in our study countries and regions (see map). Collaborations can include:
We encourage researchers to contact us to introduce themselves, their activity or project and express their areas of interest for possible collaboration with the LANDMARC team.
