GLOBIOM Projects

Below are a selection of ongoing projects of which GLOBIOM contributes. 
Livestock Production Scenarios (AnimalChange)

AnimalChange creates scenarios that project 20 and 40 years into the future to allow policymakers to see what impact climate change is likely to have on livestock production in Europe, Northern and sub-Saharan Africa, and Latin America. More

Energy Use Impacts on the Environment (EnerGEO)

EnerGEO assessed the current and future impact of energy use on the environment by linking environmental observation systems with the processes involved in exploiting energy resources. More


EUCLIMIT performs model-based scenario quantification which supports the European Commission in undertaking impact assessments and analysing policy options for implementing and further developing the Climate and Energy package and other climate-relevant policies in the EU. More

Social and Political Conditions for Satisfying the World Food Needs (FoodSecure)

The FoodSecure project responds to the challenge of food shortages and volatility by enabling stakeholders to design sustainable strategies to assess and address the short- and long-term challenges of food security. More

Sources and Sinks for Greenhouse Gases (GHG-Europe)

GHG-Europe analyzed European agricultural and forestry lands to determine both the sources and the sinks of three major greenhouse gases and what percentage of those gases was anthropogenic. More

Impact Quantification of Global Changes (Global IQ)

A primary objective of the project is to estimate socio-economic impacts arising from global changes by using economic models. More

Quantifying the indirect land use change impact of biofuels consumed in the EU (ILUC)

In an assignment for the European Commission, a consortium of Ecofys, IIASA and E4tech will use the GLOBIOM model to assess indirect land use change impacts of conventional and advanced biofuels consumed in the EU. More

Quantifying Projected Impacts Under 2°C Warming (IMPACT2C)

IMPACT2C enhances knowledge, quantifies climate change impacts, and adopts an analytical structure that includes climate and impacts modelling, vulnerabilities, risks and economic costs, as well as potential responses, for Europe. More

Climate Change and Agricultural Productivity (ISAC)

ISAC used a new generation of high-frequency, high-resolution imaging from new satellites to provide detailed agricultural information for improved scientific monitoring. More

Life Cycle Impacts of Goods, Services, Activities (LC-IMPACT)

The LC-IMPACT project developed methods to assess the environmental life cycle impact of a vast number of goods, services, and activities. Assessments examined the environmental costs of, for example, erosion caused by land use and toxic substances used in production processes. More


The LEDPathways aims to identify low emission agricultural pathways and priorities for mitigation in agricultural landscapes using integrated assessment modelling and scenarios. More

Impact of Technological Change in Europe (PROSUITE)

PROSUITE aimed to develop the tools needed to predict the impact of technological changes on Europe’s environment, economies, and social institutions over the next several decades. More

The Next Step in Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD-PAC)

REDD-PAC aims to develop technical know-how and capacity in designing efficient, effective and environmentally relevant policy strategies for the on-going UN-REDD programme More

Complete Projects include:

Envisioning Paradigm Shifts in Society (PASHMINA)

The PASHMINA project used complex modeling to create scenarios that envision changes in the use of energy, transportation, land, and the environment 20 to 40 years into the future. More

EuroGEOSS — A European Approach to GEOSS

EuroGEOSS contributed to the international effort to create the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) by making existing systems that gather data on forestry, drought, and biodiversity interoperable and easier to use. More
