9.4.3 Global assessments

For quantification of the economic potential of future mitigation by forests, three approaches are presented in current literature. These are: a) regional bottom-up assessments per country or continent; b) global forest sector models; and c) global multi-sectoral models. An overview of studies for these approaches is presented in Section 9.4.3. The final integrated global conclusion and regional comparison is given in Section 9.4.4. Supply of forest biomass for bioenergy is given in Box 9.2 and incorporated in Section, within the energy sector’s mitigation potential. For comments on the baselines, see Section 9.3.
