Carbon-optimised land management strategies for Southern Amazonia

Hauptinhalt der Seite

For more than five years (2011-2016), German and Brazilian universities, the Helmholtz-Centre for Environmental Research and the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) have developed sustainable land management strategies for the southern Amazon as part of the research project CARBIOCIAL (Carbon Sequestration, Biodiversity and Social Structures in Southern Amazonia). Scientists studied how higher quantities of carbon can be stored in soils, how climate change impacts agricultural yields and how land use practices will change under different socio-economic scenarios.

The results of the research project have now been compiled in a special issue of the science journal "Regional Environmental Change". The special issue entitled "Carbon-optimised land management strategies for southern Amazonia" was edited by Dr. Claas Nendel, acting co-head of the ZALF Research Platform "Models and Simulation" and can be accessed under the following link:
