Edited by Geert Van Calster, Wim Vandenberghe and Leonie Reins

Governments around the world have been trying to find ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for decades. This detailed Handbook considers the spectrum of legal and market-based instruments as well as strategies and policies adopted around the world and suggests more effective, comprehensive and responsive ways of managing climate change mitigation.

Chapter 14: Land use, land use change and forestry – How to enter the climate impact of managing biospheres and wood into the EU’s greenhouse gas accounting

Peter Wehrheim and Asger Strange Olesen

Subjects: environment, climate change, environmental law, law - academic, energy law, environmental law


This chapter aims to shed light on the interlinked elements which govern the way the mitigation effects of managing biospheres and wood are included in the legislative framework of both international and the EU’s domestic climate policies. This chapter will not discuss the adaptation aspects but focus on the legal framework for mitigation policies related to agriculture and forestry in the international climate negotiations and in the acquis communautaire.
