    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;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.&amp;nbsp;The project team adapted the global economic model GLOBIOM (developed by IIASA) to analyse land use policies in Brazil.&amp;nbsp; The model results were taken into account by Brazilian decision-makers when developing the country&amp;#39;s intended nationally determined contribution (INDC), submitted to UNFCCC COP-21 in Paris in 2015.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;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&amp;rsquo;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.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;</description>
