COP15 Copenhagen

12 November 2009

At the 15th Session of the Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Convention to Combat Climate (COP15) Change, in Copenhagen, Alex McBratney will be participating as a member of the European Commission delegation. He will take part in a side event hosted by the EU Presidency on Saturday December 12th. This is a symposium on global soil carbon. Alex will be talking on soil carbon auditing (he currently has an ARC linkage project on the topic), and about soil carbon prediction in the globalsoilmap project ( . Alex thinks it is quite feasible to audit soil carbon changes on farms for offset purposes. The globalsoilmap project will hopefully give a definitive estimate of the world's soil carbon levels.
