Abstract

This report aims to give a complete and transparent overview and motivation of all steps involved in the construction of the land use and land use change matrix used for the UNFCCC submission 2009 for LULUCF and onwards. For the 2009 submission to the UNFCCC the land use change matrix was updated and based on an improved wall-to-wall approach derived from topographical maps. Updates in methodology and data sets were included in order to present the best estimate of land use and land use change in The Netherlands that is currently possible. In this report all steps involved in the calculation of the land use and land use change matrix used from 2009 on are described. Also a motivation is given why The Netherlands considers the approach taken as the best possible in their specific situation. The results of the calculations are reported and the final matrix is discussed in view of developments in Dutch land use related policies. Transitions that appear counterintuitive are explained and motivated using examples from the maps.
