Project Title:

Irish Land Use Emission and Sequestration Support Tool

Project Coordinator:

Dr. Trevor Donellan

Project Abstract

The key objective of this project is to develop a modelling capacity to examine future scenarios for agricultural greenhouse gas emissions and carbon sequestration by forestry in Ireland. Specifically, the project will assist policy makers and other stakeholders to explore potential future land use developments in Ireland under a range of scenarios to understand the implications for GHG emissions and carbon stocks. The project brings together the expertise of researchers working in a range of disciplines, including the economics of agriculture and forestry, environmental science, forestry research, spatial analysis and computer science.  The integrated modelling platform will be capable of being used as a decision support tool for policy makers, analysing the trade-offs between different strategic choices, which could arise from domestic or international policy options.  The ultimate aim is to assist policy makers in delivering policy which can generate desirable economic and environmental land use outcomes in Ireland.
