The Forestry and Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Modeling Forum will bring together leading researchers from around the world for dialogue and collaboration around biophysical and economic modeling and the empirical analysis of greenhouse gas mitigation, carbon sequestration, resilience and bioenergy potential in the agriculture and forestry sectors.

The three-day forum will provide an important and unique venue for bringing together agriculture and forestry modelers from U.S. and Canadian government agencies, universities and research institutions to share ideas and foster collaboration. A high level of market integration exists between these countries, so it's essential to accurately reflect trade and other linkages. In addition, modeling techniques developed in applications for one country are often readily transferable to the other.

The ultimate objective is to provide information useful for public and private strategic analysis; the planning of domestic and international policy options for carbon sequestration and GHG mitigation options in the two sectors; the potential role of biomass for bioenergy production; and issues related to climate change impacts and adaptation.
