    Description

    Land use change is a key part of global change. Deforestation, urban sprawl, agriculture, and other human influences have substantially altered natural ecosystems and fragmented the global landscape. Slowing down deforestation and afforesting environmentally sensitive agricultural land are important steps for mitigating climate change. Because no policy operates in a vacuum, however, it’s important to consider how separate climate mitigation policies might interact with each other.

    Based on science by Ralph Alig
