Lead Partner: Uppsala University

The study is focusing on the optimal distribution of land use choices that will in turn optimise forestry, low-carbon energy options (hydropower & bioenergy), food security, and hydropower production. Key indicators for assessing “effective resource efficiency” relate to the potential impacts of land use change on water availability, including bioenergy production, food security, hydropower production, contributions to low-carbon energy (bioenergy, hydropower, etc.) and impacts on employment and other sectoral economic performance indicators. The main actors from the forestry, agricultural and hydropower sectors are mobilised, including the Swedish Forestry Agency (Skogforsk), Ministry of Agriculture, Swedish Energy Agency.
