Impacts on the EU 2030 climate target of including LULUCF in the climate and energy policy framework

The focus of this study is on the period 2021-2030. Emissions in this future period are estimated by using projections which make assumptions about the development of emission drivers and describe a future trajectory of how emissions might develop. For the projection, this report uses European Commission figures, published in the Trends to 2050 Report (EC, 2014). It describes the EU Reference scenario projection 2013.
