Description

The public is invited to attend a webinar hosted by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, focused on integrated assessment modeling of the land use implications of bioenergy production. This activity is part of the study Developing a Research Agenda for Carbon Dioxide Removal and Reliable Sequestration, in which the committee will identify questions needed to 1) assess the benefits, risks, and scale potential for CO2 removal and sequestration approaches, and 2) increase the commercial viability of these approaches.

On January 30th, the committee will conduct a webinar on integrated assessment modeling of the indirect land use impacts of bioenergy production. Dr. Kate Calvin, Research Economist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Joint Global Change Research Institute and Dr. Alexander Popp, Group Leader for the Land-Use Management Research Domain III: Sustainable Solutions at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research will provide overviews of the approaches to modeling land use and capabilities to understand direct and indirect land use changes associated with bioenergy development within different integrated assessment models, as well as future research needs. Discussion and Q&A will follow their remarks.
