PHYSICAL ASPECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE IN THE SIXTH REPORT OF THE INTERGOVERNMENTAL PANEL ON CLIMATE CHANGE (IPCC).

This talk will summarize the main messages of the physical aspects of climate change concluded by the sixth assessment report of the IPCC. It will illustrate why it is unequivocal that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, ocean and land, the scale of recent changes across the climate system as a whole, the role of human activity, the improved knowledge about the relevant processes, the future changes under different scenarios, the irreversibility of some of these changes in human time scales, the possibility of the occurrence of low likelihood-high impact events and the requirements to limit global warming and its consequences in the rest of the system.

VULNERABILITY, RISK AND ADAPTATION TO CLIMATE CHANGE ON THE BASQUE COAST: KOSTAEGOKI

The KOSTAEGOKI project is part of the “Plan de Impulso al Medio Ambiente (PIMA) Adapta Costas CCAA 2017”, and has been carried out in coordination, on the one hand with the other coastal regions and the Spanish Office for Climate Change, and on the other hand through an internal working group that includes Ihobe, Azti, several areas of the Basque Government and the Provincial Councils of Bizkaia and Gipuzkoa.

The aim of the KOSTAEGOKI project is to provide relevant information and tools in relation to the effects of the average sea level rise caused by Climate Change (CC) and the impact of waves on the Basque coast, so that they can be used in the planning and management of coastal areas, as well as to provide adaptation measures that will help the competent administrations to face the challenges of this global phenomenon.

The risk analysis includes the modelling of sea level rise and waves in future scenarios and their impact on various receptors, including beach erosion, affected population, residential and industrial land, capital stock and the natural environment.

The proposed adaptation measures are classified following the three main groups proposed by the IPCC (physical or structural measures, social measures and institutional measures) as well as according to their typology: protection, adaptation and process.

This is summarised intwodocuments (one analysing the risk and the other proposing measures) and a cartographic viewer .

FACING THE CLIMATE ADAPTATION CHALLENGE AT THE COAST

Building on the main conclusions of the second volume of the IPCC 6th Assessment Report, this presentation will highlight the major role of climate extreme and compound events in the amplification of climate change impacts in coastal areas so as to discuss climage adaptation strategies that can be put in place to address rapidly-increasing risks. This conference will discuss where we are in terms of adaptation at the global scale and in coastal areas more specifically. It will analyze the lessons learnt from adaptation policies and measures implemented over the past decade and discuss the key challenges ahead.

OCEAN ACIDIFICATION RESEARCH TOWARDS, NATURE-BASED SOLUTIONS, MITIGATION AND ADAPTATION

In a rapidly acidifying ocean, the safeguarding and strengthening of coastal ecosystems and the growing blue economy, though nature-based solutions requires that scientific knowledge is delivered that is focused, relevant and understood. It is paramount that optimum and appropriate studies are undertaken to develop relevant management of coastal and marine systems of high climatic and socioecological importance: understanding global change through local knowledge. The challenge of ocean acidification (OA) is recognized by the United Nations and a specific indicator under Sustainable Development Goal #14 has been developed under the custodial of agency of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission: 14.3.1.: 14.3.1. Average marine acidity (pH) measured at agreed suite of representative sampling stations. Through the Global Ocean Acidification Network, an implementation strategy is in place to maximize the utilization of OA observations to improve our understanding of ecosystem response and optimize models. The challenge, however, remains to deliver knowledge for coastal services not represented by national or institutional monitoring programs. This knowledge should be co-produced and interpreted to fit stakeholder needs and to be optimally relevant for service-sensitivity studies. We report here an investigation of two Norwegian fjords with little or no background information on the carbonate system and an uncertain role of management entities. Stakeholder engagement produced a monitoring strategy that was tailored to the unique conditions and existing coastal services; and one which would not have been designed by the scientists, alone. These observations were used to inform downscaling of regional models and the current carbonate system state and projections were evaluated with local to national industrial and management institutions. The identification that some ecosystems were already beyond, or approaching, OA thresholds for key ecosystem players and, that within years-to-decades, societally important coastal services would be challenged, has led to a rethinking of coastal management and action towards mitigation. Partnerships with local management and industrial actors is leading to new activities that are delivering climate-smart investments towards a more productive, sustainable coast. This work is guiding the strategic development in the new UN Decade Ocean Acidification Research for Sustainability Programme (OARS).

ADAPTATION ROUTES AND EXTREME EVENTS. PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE FOR RISK REDUCTION.

The lecture will present the generation and estimation of risk to coastal and port structures and ecosystems in this area. It will address the role of extreme events, climate trends and predictive maintenance as elements in the estimation and prevention of coastal risks. The work will present comparatively the risk conditions on the Basque coast and the Catalan coast, depending on the number and intensity of extreme storms in each of them. The results of recent European and national projects dealing with this subject will be used as a reference.

Guest speaker:

BLUE CARBON: FROM THE ECOSYSTEM TO THE MARKETS

The unstoppable rise of CO2 in the atmosphere has boosted interest in the conservation and promotion of biospheric carbon sinks to help mitigate this trend. These include sinks associated with Blue Carbon Ecosystems (BCEs): marshes, mangroves and seagrass beds.

Just as each additional tonne of CO2 2 captured or not emitted by terrestrial forests can be traded on regular or voluntary carbon markets (Cap & Tradeapproach),2 CO2 captured by BCEs could be converted into carbon credits through offset projects.

While the objectives of this mechanism are, on paper, indisputable, its feasibility and effectiveness in practice are widely disputed. The road to monetisation is not an easy one. Firstly, a detailed quantification of the size and dynamics of these sinks is essential, a major challenge both conceptually and technically given the high complexity of the processes involved, the extent and diversity of BCEs and the general scarcity of available information. On the other hand, the tonnes of carbon captured or emissions avoided have to be certified through labyrinthine numerical approximations and, finally, integrated into existing environmental legislation.

This paper will summarise the current state of knowledge on these carbon sinks, the main existing gaps, and the obstacles in our aspirations for blue carbon ecosystems to be recognised as eligible for offsetting CO2 emissions through conservation and reforestation projects.
