The UN Convention on Climate Change requires countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from all sources, including agriculture and forestry, and represents an important challenge for Europe's land use policies. This book examines actions, in Europe and elsewhere, to reduce emissions from forestry and agriculture through changes in land use. The book takes into account the intertwined political, economic and environmental pressures, and focuses on issues of efficiency, equity, and long-term impact of policy changes. With authors from ten nations, the book gives a comprehensive view of greenhouse gas emissions, examining the effects at local, national and global scales. Practitioners, researchers, and policy makers in agriculture and forestry will all find this a valuable introduction to this critical issue.G33 Garden services and provision of agricultural services G34 Construction and ground work, painting, building, public utilities, etc. G35 Repair and maintenance commodities G36 Veterinary services G37 Other services G38 Market marginsanbsp;...
