Land use and LULUCF emissions in GreenREFORM


This memo documents how the land use module of GreenREFORM works and, in particular, how so-called LULUCF-emissions are calculated.


In this note we describe our current approach to modelling LULUCF emissions. We attempt to replicate the official method used for estimating emissionsin the Danish National Emissions Inventory 2020, DNEI. However, as economists, LULUCF dynamics are outside our area of expertise. Improvements therefore depend on improving i) our understanding of LULUCF dynamics and ii) access to the relevant data. One purpose of the memo as it stands is to enable us to have a discussion of these issues with field experts.
