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