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 has developed a large number of emissions scenarios and made projections of future climate changes associate with each. To date no direct quantitative comparison with other modelling frameworks has been performed. This study compares AVOID climate projections with those from a number of different models, from Integrated […]
