Biografie

Federico E. Alice Guier is a Costa Rican forest engineer with a MSc. in Carbon Management from the University of Edinburgh.

His research as a forester has mainly focused on forest carbon accounting (tree allometric equations) but given that his interests lay more on the implementation side, he has been involved in the development and auditing of carbon projects under different schemes and for different sectoral scopes. This same interest got him to work together with local governments in the development of climate change strategies, which required an understanding of challenges & options for all different sectors & the consideration of adaptation needs together with mitigation. He has been involved in climate change decision making processes in his home country, and this got him to eventually participate from UNFCCC negotiations.

He continues to do research on these subjects and his overall interest remains on how to overcome barriers to implementation of environmental measures and policies.

“All politicians know exactly what to do... What they don’t know is how to get re-elected after doing it”

Now, his research aims to combine his experience as a forester and as a carbon manager and to look at forestry not just as forests and environmental services but as an economic sector facing challenges and opportunities that arise from the climate change debate.

His ongoing research aims then to evaluate opportunities for climate change mitigation through the (sustainable) management of natural tropical forests and its wood products. It will assess the carbon dioxide balance from management practices (forest biomass growth and losses); emissions associated to wood production, use and disposal, as well as their potential substitution and cascade effects. It will also try to identify differences between existing and best practices (e.g. RIL, production efficiency, substitution, etc.) and where along the production value chain are these mostly occurring. Finally, and through a case study, we will develop scenarios of possible mitigation pathways and explore ways through which these can be included into the existing frameworks for climate change management in developing countries.
