Dataset Open Access
This database on marginal, underutilized and contaminated lands (MUC) was compiled based on multiple sources. The sources include:
results from related EU and international projects that have already produced valuable tools, maps, and information, which addresses sustainable bioenergy production on MUC lands;
data provided by governments as well as public and private stakeholders and;
results of remote sensing-based classification of underutilised lands in terms of time series analysis to complete the gaps.
The mapping of underutilized lands was conducted on two levels:
