The objectives of EMF 21 study were to conduct a new comprehensive , multi-gas policy assessment to improve the understanding of the affects of including non-CO2 GHGs (NCGGs) and landuse (terrestrial sequestration) into short- andlong-term mitigation policies. EMf 21 essentially answers the following question: How important are NCGGs & landuse in climate policies?
It provided explanations for differences in results from different models and identified high priority areas for future research and advanced the state-of-the-art in integrated assessment and climate economic modeling. In addition, it strengthened collaboration between NCGG and landuse experts and modeling teams.
