Drylands, which span an area five times the size of the Amazon, have massive potential to serve as either a carbon sink or source depending on shifting resource availability and disturbance events. In my talk, I will present the current theory and understanding of dryland carbon cycling, how ecosystem models capture these trends, and what challenges lie ahead. I will then present a new European Research Council Starter Grant project that aims to deliver models capable of forecasting nature-based climate solutions in drylands and collaborate with industry players.
