    If run in stand-alone mode, REMIND-MAgPIE 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.
