High ILUC-Lot 1

The High Indirect Land Use Change (ILUC) Lot 1 project aims to quantify feedstock expansion onto land with high carbon stock, as input for the determination of high ILUC fuels. The project provides technical assistance to and is financed by the European Commission (DG-Energy). 

EOCS oversees the Global Mapping component, trying to:

  1. Reproduce the current estimates of global expansion by eight major crops
  2. Improve the crop and grassland input data sets
  3. Improve the drivers of deforestation data sets
