The COBRA Project (www.projectcobra.org) is a multidisciplinary project focused on promoting community owned solutions to emerging challenges related to climate change, biodiversity conservation and forest management. We are working with indigenous groups in South America, using a range of visual methods including participatory video and participatory photography.
Total carbon emissions from forests decreased by more than 25 percent between 2001 and 2015, mainly due to a slowdown in global deforestation rates, according to new estimates published by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) today. Document: http://www.fao.org/3/a-i4470e.pdf
Climate-smart agriculture enhances food security and climate change resilience while mitigating climate change through carbon sequestration. Sustainable agricultural land management practices (SALM) help realize this triple-win.
The Ontario Climate Change Mapper is a pilot project created jointly between the Geomatics Institute at Sir Sandford Fleming College and Trent University. It is designed to assist with web-based visualization of climate change scenarios as modelled until 2070. The project started out as a collaborative project created by students at Sir Sandford Fleming College.
