Meat consumption, production and land use : model implementation and scenarios

    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

    Abstract

    This report discusses simulations with the LEITAP model about opportunities to reduce land use as a consequence of changing meat consumption and production. In order to be able to generate plausible simulation results, the LEITAP model had to be adjusted. These changes are discussed in the first part of the report. The next part discusses the simulation experiments and their results. Finally, we discuss shortly where we stand with this type of analyses and what steps could be taken to improve on the quality of this type of analysis.
