Modelling work for MATISSE

Sustainable development has become an overall policy objective in the European Union and in the MATISSE project the forest sector is chosen as one case study, among three others, to illustrate the possibility of achieving a step-wise advance in the science and application of Integrated Sustainability Assessment (ISA) of EU policies. The core objective of the MATISSE project was to improve the tool kit available for conducting Integrated Sustainability Assessment.

Modelling work for CATRINE

Climate change may influence the forest sector in Nordic Countries through changes in forest growth and through changes in world trade patterns because of climate changes in other regions. The CATRINE project analysed the order of magnitude of both these impacts by using a General Computable Equilibrium (GCE) macroeconomic global model which includes trade between Norway and 6 other regions, and compares the results of this model with the results of using the partial equilibrium forest sector model EFI-GTM.

LULUCF - Long-term analysis of LULUCF options at EU level

The overall objective of this study was to conduct a model-based, quantitative assessment of the economic, environmental and social impacts of an inclusion of the LULUCF sector in the EU greenhouse gas reduction commitment in the short, medium and long term (2020, 2030 and 2050).

The tasks of EFI are to assess baseline and mitigation scenarios with the EFISCEN model and to conduct a sensitivity analysis.
