An integrated global land use database for CGE analysis of climate policy options

ByHUEY-LIN LEE, THOMAS W. HERTEL, STEVEN ROSE AND

The preceding two chapters of this volume have discussed physical and economic databases for global agriculture and forestry, respectively. These form the foundation for the integrated, global land use database discussed in this chapter. However, in order to utilize these data for global CGE analysis, it is first necessary to integrate them into a global, general equilibrium database. This integration is the subject of the present chapter.
