The global systems analysis framework can be applied more precisely at different national levels. Professor Valin runs through the necessary steps to replace the global components of the model for the national model. He then gives an examples to show where and when deforestation occurs using scenarios and projections. He cautions that when looking at national mitigation plans, it is important to keep in mind the global dimension and the risk of uncoordinated policy approaches that cannot create synergies across the different regions in order to decrease final emissions.
