GHG Europe

Progress towards Objective 4

Assess, in economic, societal and environmental terms, the impact of possible post-2012 strategies / policies on future carbon pools and CO2, N2O and CH4 fluxes in Europe and possible synergies by coordination of different land use related policies and of cross-sectoral climate policies.


An economic and integrated policy assessment is being carried out. So far the work focused on model integration and adaptation. An integrated framework for the projection of LULUCF CO2 emissions and removals has been established.

Two basic policy scenarios are established: the baseline scenario driven by GDP, population and bioenergy demand without the recent climate policy assumptions and the reference scenario, which considers the EU’s climate and energy package.


Overview of general modelling approach.
a) Baseline scenario and b) reference scenario of domestic wood production for EU27 for energy wood (based on PRIMES bioenergy from fellings and traditional fuel wood) and other wood (i.e. material use including sawn-wood, pulp wood and other industrial round-wood). The original GLOBIOM data were scaled by historic wood removals and adjusted in the year 2005 to correct for observed wood removals.
