The contribution of european forest-related policies to climate change mitigation: energy substitution first

17 April 2013 - Climate Report

By Frederic Baron, Valentin Bellassen and Mariana Deheza

With the objective of analyzing the coherence of these policies, we have established a typology and a hierarchy firstly by laying out the legal status and the financial and institutional resources associated with each policy, and secondly by reviewing the objectives of each policy in regards to climate change mitigation in the forestry sector. We finally analyze potentials synergies and conflicts between them.
