El Equipo MICCA

Coordinadora del programa MICCA

Marja-Liisa Tapio-Biström
Oficial superior del cambio climático,
División de Clima, Energía y Tenencia de Tierras (NRC)

"I want to see the understanding and practice of mitigation as an integral part of the future climate smart agriculture develop and spread all over the world."

Miembros del equipo

Riccardo Biancalani
Oficial Técnico – Recursos Naturales
División de Clima, Energía y Tenencia de Tierras (NRC)

“I am interested in working with the partner countries in the linkages between climate change, land management and food security. I hope that we will be able to use our technical work within the MICCA program for supporting development actions and sustainable use of natural resources.”



Giacomo Branca
Économiste Agricole et des Ressources
Division de l'Économie du Développement Agricole (ESA)

"I hope that policy makers will be more aware of the beneficial effects of sustainable production practices on crop yields and will promote incentive mechanisms to increase adoption of such practices among farmers."



Louis Bockel
Fonctionnaire principal chargé de soutien aux politique agricoles
Service de Soutien pour l'Assistance aux Politiques (TCSP)

"Mainstreaming climate-smart agriculture is now being seen as the ‘right way to work’ for country policy-makers and for donors in all agriculture development. MICCA will provide important support to this process."



Rocío Danica Condor Golec
Oficial Técnica - Cambio climático y el medio ambiente
División de Clima, Energía y Tenencia de Tierras (NRC)

“I hope I can contribute to facilitating collaboration among different climate change actors, and supporting capacity development of member countries on their agriculture national greenhouse gas inventory”.



Alessandro Ferrara
Agronomista – Inventario de Gases de Efecto Invernadero
División de Clima, Energía y Tenencia de Tierras (NRC)

“I see MICCA as a very important opportunity to improve data availability and assessments on greenhouse gas emissions, and support rural areas in adopting appropriate mitigation strategies to ensure sustainable agriculture and food security.”



Pierre Gerber
Oficial Técnico -  Políticas Pecuarias 
Subdivisión de Información Ganadera y de Análisis y Políticas del Sector (AGAL)

"I would like to see MICCA identify effective policy and technical options for the reduction of emissions per unit of product in the agricultural sector, thereby providing pathways for the sector to grow while minimizing its impact on climate."



Benjamin Henderson 
Oficial Técnico -  Políticas Pecuarias 
Subdivisión de Información Ganadera y de Análisis y Políticas del Sector (AGAL)

"Current knowledge about agriculture’s global potential to cost effectively mitigate greenhouse gases, comes from a very small handful of studies. And we know even less about the wider socio-economic effects that mitigation policies at this scale could generate. The MICCA project has great potential to expand our knowledge on these critical policy-relevant issues."



Madeleine Jonsson
Ex Ante Appraisal Carbon-balance Tool
Servicio de Apoyo de Asistencia Política (TCSP)

"I believe MICCA Programme activities will contribute to critical policy-making processes and lead to progress in addressing the environmental, social and economic components of agricultural sustainability. The MICCA Projects will benefit those that are highly affected by the impacts of climate change: the small-holder farmers."



Christiane Kessl
Administrativa
División de Clima, Energía y Tenencia de Tierras (NRC)

"It’s my hope that MICCA will contribute to climate change being considered a serious problem that everyone must face together and make meaningful investments to deal with. It shouldn’t be seen the last issue to resolve on the international agenda and taking responsibility for it shouldn’t be put off."



Michael MacLeod
Oficial Técnico – Mitigación del Cambio Climático
Subdivisión de Información Ganadera y de Análisis y Políticas del Sector (AGAL)

"I’d like to see MICCA help agriculture to further deliver on its social, environmental and economic potential. We can make an important contribution to this by showing where performance can be improved, quantifying the improvements that could be made in theory, and then demonstrating how these ideas can be applied in practice."



Robert Mayo
Estadístico Principal
Departamento de Desarrollo Económico y Social (ES)

"We look forward to MICCA strengthening countries’ ability to gather, compile and analyse greenhouse gas related data from the agricultural sector."



 

Constance Neely
Científico agrícola
División de Clima, Energía y Tenencia de Tierras (NRC)

"The MICCA pilot projects offer an opportunity to obtain the scientific evidence to demonstrate how integrated farming systems and landscape management can mitigate agricultural emissions while ensuring functional ecosystem processes and improved productivity. I hope farmers and pastoralists will then be recognized for their stewardship of the natural resource base that supports us all."



Maria Nuutinen
Oficial Técnico – Mitigación del Cambio Climático, Profesionale asociada
División de Clima, Energía y Tenencia de Tierras (NRC)

"There are remarkable amounts of enthusiasm, knowledge and courage being channelled toward preventing catastrophic changes in global weather patterns. My aspiration is that MICCA becomes part of shared movement that will make agriculture climate-smart and help farmers everywhere provide for people’s needs."



Carolyn Opio
Oficial Técnico – Recursos Naturales
Subdivisión de Información Ganadera y de Análisis y Políticas del Sector (AGAL)

"MICCA makes its case by providing a basis for the advancement and understanding of climate change mitigation while bridging the gap between science and policy. In this process, I hope we will be able to demonstrate that sustainable low-carbon agriculture development is possible and can bring with it environmental rewards."



Gordon Ramsay
Comunicaciones
División de Clima, Energía y Tenencia de Tierras (NRC)

"We all want to get the message across to governments and the public that making agriculture and forestry more sustainable is not only good for farmers, it’s good for everyone who cares about the planet."

Janie Rioux
El fortalecimiento de las capacidades y cambio climático
División de Clima, Energía y Tenencia de Tierras (NRC)

"Through capacity building and pilot projects, MICCA will demonstrate how farmers and pastoralists can contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and sequestering carbon through climate smart agriculture and sustainable land management, while at the same time improving their livelihoods and ability to adapt to change."



Simone Rossi
Científico ambiental - Inventario de Gases de Efecto Invernadero
Departamento de Desarrollo Económico y Social (ES)

"Increasing agricultural production in a climate-smart way is essential to move towards sustainable food security, and ultimately towards sustainable development. In this context, improving completeness and reliability in the assessments of greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture and land use change processes is key to monitoring the impact of agriculture on climate change."



Mirella Salvatore
Estadístico, Inventario de Gases de Efecto Invernadero
División de Clima, Energía y Tenencia de Tierras (NRC)

"Providing advice on mitigation policies requires solid information on greenhouse gas emissions. But currently we have many gaps in our data. With MICCA, I want to contribute to building a global information base on greenhouse gas emissions and help countries to improve their capacity to collect and monitor data."



Christina Seeberg-Elverfeldt
Oficial Técnica - Cambio climático y el medio ambiente
División de Clima, Energía y Tenencia de Tierras (NRC)

"I hope that  smallholder farmers will be aware of the contribution they can make to mitigate climate change and will have been able to learn from other farmers, extensionists and project developers that they feel they can become a part of the solution to climate change."

Francesco Tubiello
Oficial Técnico – Recursos Naturales
División de Clima, Energía y Tenencia de Tierras (NRC)

"I would like to see climate change addressed in ways that enhance rural development and improve food security. MICCA can provide the robust data, accessible knowledge and practical guidelines needed by farmers, countries and the international community to take action.’’



Luise Zagst
Estudio de Base Socio-económico
División de Clima, Energía y Tenencia de Tierras (NRC)

“I am looking forward to learning more about the pilot project’s communities, their awareness of climate change and possible mitigation techniques. I believe it is essential that a project like MICCA involves as many local stakeholders as possible to achieve sustainable changes on a global level.”
