Forestry - REMIND

|Institution||Potsdam Institut für Klimafolgenforschung (PIK), Germany, https://www.pik-potsdam.de/research/sustainable-solutions/models/remind.|
|Solution concept||General equilibrium (closed economy)MAgPIE: partial equilibrium model of the agricultural sector;|
|Solution method||OptimizationMAgPIE: cost minimization;|
If run in stand-alone mode, REMIND relies on results from MAgPIE to account for CO2 emissions from land use, land use change and forestry. Reduced emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD) as a mitigation option is represented via a climate policy dependent marginal abatement cost curve
The coupled REMIND-MAgPIE system allows for a detailed analysis of forestry-based mitigation options in the context of an integrated climate change mitigation scenario.
