Call for tenders for a study on resource efficiency policies for land-use-related climate mitigation
The European Commission has published a call for tenders for a study on resource efficiency policies for land-use-related climate mitigation.
The Europe 2020 Strategy of the European Commission and the related Resource Efficiency Flagship Initiative set out resource efficiency and low-carbon development as key topics for the next decade.
Significant improvements in resource efficiency are needed in order to successfully face the triple challenge of increasing resource scarcity, elevated resource price levels, and resource price volatility. At the same time, low-carbon development implies a step-wise reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, and, in principle, a decoupling of economic growth from emissions from fossil carbon use.
The objective of the study will be to recommend a policy framework suited to optimising the reduction of land-use-related greenhouse gas emissions and maximising carbon removals by promoting four major mitigation options..
