International Symposium on Climate Change in the Polyforum-Forum 100
Information is essential to support decisions on Climate Change.
Researchers from different institutions discussed issues related to climate change during the International Symposium on Climate Change: Research relevant to Mexico, held in the Polyforum- Forum 100, as part of COP16 activities.
It is necessary "to establish information systems on climate and emissions to support and legitimize decisions on mitigation and adaptation," said Diana Liverman, Co-Director of the Institute of Environment from Oxford University.
"Forests play an important role in mitigating climate change... they hold 25 percent of terrestrial carbon," said Tracey Osborne, Professor at the School of Geography and Development at the University of Arizona, United States.
REDD Program could help prevent deforestation, because it gives money to governments, companies and forest owners to keep forests intact, said Osborne.
"You can say that climate change will lead to a higher intensity of hurricanes, in addition to this, to a higher frequency of more intense hurricanes", said Arnoldo Matus Kramer, PhD Candidate from the School of Geography and Environment, Institute for the Environmental Change at Oxford University, who spoke on the relationship between environmental phenomena and climate change.
For a better coverage of the Summits on Climate Change, journalists need to be better trained and specialized, said James Painter, Director of the Reuters Institute of Journalism and researcher in the Department of Politics and International Relations at Oxford University.
