AVOID 1: Modeling the Role of Remaining Tropical Forests in Climate Change Mitigation

September 17, 2013

At the time this study was carried out, land use change (LUC) resulting from deforestation and other smaller sources contributed ~17% of global anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, whilst more recently (29) the deforestation component alone has been estimated to contribution 11% of the global total.. SRES baselines assume […]

AVOID 1: Reconciling LULUFC accounting with modeled mitigation targets

January 16, 2012
|

The flux of CO2 due to land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF) is estimated in a variety of science- and policy-based assessments. Each approach uses different data and methods as they are designed for different purposes. Results are not directly comparable with each other and […]

AVOID 1: Amazon Case Study: Development of a new framework for characterising dangerous climate change impacts

April 6, 2010
|

This study includes the progress towards development of a framework which begins by defining a ‘dangerous impact’ and produces a range of global climate change and associated emissions. This reverses the order of the more usual technique and avoids the resulting large uncertainty in the impact. The first […]
