Quantifying the Climate Change Mitigation Potential of Terrestrial Ecosystem Management, NERC

Apr 7, 2010

Working with Imperial College London, the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), Forest Research, and Aberdeen University to investigate the mitigation potential from biofuels and bioenergy, avoided deforestation, and afforestation/reforestation. Ecometrica assessed the economic, social and environmental impacts of avoided deforestation, and compiled a number of case studies to identify real-world constraints to achieving the technically available mitigation potential. This was a two year research project funded by the UK’s Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).
