Developing countries exploring pathways to climate compatibility




(26-27 March 2014)

The Agriculture, Forestry and Land Use (AFOLU) workshop was held in Santiago, Chile. Participants from four MAPS countries (Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Peru) and from Argentina attended the workshop.

The AFOLU Lab was a follow-up of the AgriLab (2012) and LULUCF Lab (2012) and instead of discussing modelling approaches to the sector, the country teams presented and reviewed the results of the different assessments of agriculture and forestry baselines, mitigation actions and process experiences.

The objective of the workshop was to share experiences, (methodological, procedural and process related) between country teams, and provide means to increase quality, robustness and ambition of results of projections and information for decision making in the agriculture and forestry sectors. This would assist teams in the next phases of the MAPS process.
