Continuing from Unpacking Land-related Emissions Abatement Potential (Part 1: Agriculture) Forestry remains the most important part of LULUCF – with the greatest potential as a sink but also as a major contributor to emissions. Compared to agricultural levers, forestry levers are more expensive to implement and oftentimes, in the case of… read more
Unpacking Land-related Emissions Abatement Potential (Part 1: Agriculture)
As mentioned in an earlier post, our analysis of the McKinsey Abatement Cost Curve suggests greenhouse gas emission levels worldwide from forestry and agriculture could fall to 10.68 GtCO2e by 2030, a 29% reduction from projected business as usual (BAU) emissions for 2030 or a potential abatement of 4.89 GtCO2e.… read more
LULUCF Abatement Rationale & Potential Abatement
Generally, LULUCF abatement solutions are natural, readily available, and unlike some of the other sectors, can be implemented with existing technology.
