The European NewLife4Drylands project aims to apply nature-based solutions (NBS) to restore degraded and desertified lands, using remote sensing data and models. From CREAF we contribute with the experience of two research teams: the Protecsòls group, for the restoration of degraded landscapes, and the Grumets group, for environmental remote sensing.
Climate change affects birds in Europe and North-America differently than in the Mediterranean, and could expose them to a climate trap17 de February 2021Anna Ramon Revilla

FAO launched its first ever report on "The State of Knowledge of Soil Biodiversity". The report, with the participation of Pilar Andrés as an expert, examines the potential of soil organisms in ensuring sustainable agri-food systems and mitigating climate change.
A group of specialists in remote sensing applications in the water sector and in the fields of research, engineering and political decision making define the necessary services and future missions related to water of Copernicus, the observation program of the land of the European Union and the European Space Agency. This is the main axis of the European Water-ForCE research project. At CREAF, the main researcher involved is Lluís Pesquer, as well as the researchers Ester Prat, Cristina Domingo and Joan Masó, all of them also members of the GRUMETS research group.
