Summary

Land use has long been overlooked in economics and climate modelling. That is now changing. This book investigates important advances in modelling global land use, with applications considering the potential of these options to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, estimates of the costs to the economy, and analyses of the trade-offs between these objectives and the global demand for food. The book presents new databases that are the foundation for policy-relevant research in the field of global land-use change, greenhouse gas emissions and carbon sequestration, thereupon critically assessing the underlying methodologies and their use in these early applications.
