  1. Using spatially explicit data to improve our understanding of land supply responses: An application to the cropland effects of global sustainable irrigation in the Americas

    09 Aug 2018 | Contributor(s):: Nelson Benjamin Villoria, Jing Liu

    Land supply elasticities determine the rates of land conversion in global policy models. However, they are only available for few countries in the world. Therefore, analysts seeking to improve the spatial resolution of their models are forced to impose regionally homogeneous parameters...

  5. Energy prices will play an important role in determining global land use in the twenty first century

    31 Jul 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Jevgenijs Steinbuks, Tom Hertel

    Global land use research to date has focused on quantifying uncertainty effects of three major drivers affecting competition for land: the uncertainty in energy and climate policies affecting competition between food and biofuels, the uncertainty of climate impacts on agriculture and forestry,...
