Outka on Land Use, Land Use Change, and Forestry

Uma Outka (Kansas) has posted Land Use, Land Use Change, and Forestry (Book Chapter) on SSRN.  Here's the abstract:

During negotiations for the Kyoto Protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in the 1990s, the United States (US) played a notable role in securing recognition for the climate mitigation potential in land use, land use change, and forestry (LULUCF). Ultimately, the US did not to ratify the Kyoto Protocol, but as a signatory to the UNFCCC, the US is formally obliged to control its greenhouse gas emissions. This chapter provides an overview of LULUCF in the US and the primary legal regimes that structure US progress toward climate mitigation through LULUCF means. It also addresses points of legal and policy intersection between LULUCF and the energy and transportation sectors, both considered critical to climate mitigation.
