Description Also possible as Internship/Research practice

Commissioner Timmermans made tree planting a prime part of the Green Deal. How much carbon can be sequestered through this and how and by whom it has to be initiated is totally unknown.
This research uses the EFISCN model to device alternatives for this plan, and quantifies the additional carbon per country

Topic is part of the new EU project Resonate (lead at EFI in Bonn)
