Assessing future impacts of land use policies in Brazil

Camara, Gilberto

This presentation describes the methods and results of the REDD+ Policy Assessment Centre project (REDD-PAC) project, that supports decision making on REDD+, biodiversity and land use policies in Brazil. The project team adapted the global economic model GLOBIOM (developed by IIASA) to analyse land use policies in Brazil.  The model results were taken into account by Brazilian decision-makers when developing the country's intended nationally determined contribution (INDC), submitted to UNFCCC COP-21 in Paris in 2015.

In its NDC, Brazil aims to reduce emissions from deforestation and land use as a contribution to climate change mitigation and to conserve the country’s rich biodiversity. The country has pledged to cut its greenhouse gas emissions to 37% below 2005 levels by 2025 and intends to reach a 43% cut by 2030. This is the first time a major developing country has committed to an absolute decrease in emissions.
