The human IMPRINT on land-atmosphere exchange in high latitudes


Human activity simultaneously impacts on the composition of and the interactions between atmosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere. Anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions are the main driver of changes in moisture supplied to and energy available at the land surface. At the same time, land use and land management modify biochemical and biophysical vegetation properties that govern energy and water fluxes between the land surface and the atmosphere.

Strengthening the National Carbon Monitoring Center (NCMC) and GHG accounting system in Tanzania


In January 2016, Tanzania launched a national carbon monitoring centre (NCMC) at Sokoine University of Agriculture in Morogoro. The main purpose of the centre is “to build national capacity to measure, verify and report adequately on carbon emissions at national and international level”. NIBIO is the major technical partner to assist Tanzania’s NCMC, and has taken part in the development and establishment of the centre.

Biofuel4Kenya: Improving Framework Conditions and Skills for Private Sector Development in Biofuel Value Chain in Kenya (Biofuel4Kenya)


The main objective of the project is to develop a biofuel briquettes production and supply value chain from waste bagasse to market. Biofuel4Kenya will improve framework conditions for private sector development in the biofuel value chain, in order to boost commercial production of carbonized biomass briquettes from agro-industrial residues in western Kenya.
