María del Carre

Researcher

I am a forestry engineer working as a researcher at Fundación para la investigación del Clima, (FIC, www.ficlima.org). This is an independent non-profit organization founded in Spain in 1996 whose purpose is to improve adaptation to climate change through research and capacity building.

FIC's activities have been focused on future climate simulation; the assessment of future climate influence on several sectors (agriculture/food cesurity, biodiversity, hidrology...) in collaboration with experts from each sector; the communication of research results; and capoacity building.

After almost 20 years of research, FIC developed one of the most powerful statistical downscaling tools for generating local climate scenarios: FICLIMA
