Short description  INSEA will provide analytical tools to assess the carbon sink potential of land-use change.
The project will:
· Integrate economic, environmental and spatial land-use data into a modelling framework for testing terrestrial climate change mitigation methods
· Evaluate a range of carbon sink enhancement options in terms of implementation costs and greenhouse gas management benefits
Abstract (focusing on the key recommendations)  Measures are required to reduce the environmental impact of climate change. The EU has the long-term target of limiting global warming to two degrees above its pre-industrial level.
