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 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 recognizing 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.
