9780851991856: Climate Change Mitigation and European Land Use Policies

The UN Convention on Climate Change requires countries to reduce their polluting greenhouse gas emissions from all sources including agriculture, forestry and land use. Emissions associated with land use are inherent in modern farming and forestry practices, with the commitments under the Convention representing a clear challenge to restructuring of Europe’s agriculture and forestry policies.

This book primarily considers the actions of Europe and other regions in reducing land use related greenhouse gas fluxes, while recognising that the array of economic and political pressures for CAP reform and sustainable land use are fundamentally intertwined. The book is aimed at practitioners, academics and policy makers in the field of agriculture and forestry who wish to understand the importance of the global emissions issue for European and global land use. Individual contributors, from 10 countries, consider greenhouse gas emissions at the sub-national, national, EU and global scales. Efficiency, equity and implications of policy in this area are the primary focus of the volume.

About the Author:

Neil Adger is Lecturer in the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia.

Review:


"With evidence of recent global warming mounting along with the implication of increasing burning of fossil fuels, an international workshop on 'Instruments for Global Warming Mitigation: The Role of Agriculture and Forestry' was held in 1996. One result of the workshop was the assembling of this book with 22 papers contributed by 47 authors together with an extensive bibliography. The papers examine a number of complex issues involved when considering strategies to reduce emissions of methane and carbon dioxide and also increase carbon storage in vegetation and soil. This book, quite technical in places, was written for those interested in the next step: what can we or should we due [sic] to mitigate the effects of further global warming."--Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society


"The UN Convention on Climate Change requires countries to reduce their polluting greenhouse-gas emissions from all sources including agriculture, forestry, and land use. Emissions associated with land use are inherent in modern farming and forestry practices, with the commitments under the Convention representing a clear challenge to restructuring of Europe's agriculture and forestry policies. Climate-change Mitigation and European Land-use Policies primarily considers the actions of Europe and other regions in reducing land use-related greenhouse-gas fluxes. It was developed from a workshop held as part of the EU Concerted Action 'policy measures to control environmental impacts from agriculture.' It is aimed at practitioners, academics, and policy makers who wish to understand the importance of the greenhouse-gas emissions issue for European and greenhouse-gas land use."--Environmental Law
