Monetary valuation of urban underground space: A critical issue for the decision-making of urban underground space development
01. Dezember 2017
Publication date: December 2017 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 69 Author(s): Yong-Kang Qiao, Fang-Le Peng, Yang Wang Urban underground space (UUS) has attracted more and more attention worldwide, but its value, external value particularly, is often ignored or underestimated, which will influence or even change the trade-offs in the decision-making processes of UUS development. This paper employed service replacement cost method (SRCM) to access the value of urban underground space. Since the precise estimate of the value of urban underground space is almost an impossible task...

Shifting patterns of oil palm driven deforestation in Indonesia and implications for zero-deforestation commitments
01. Dezember 2017
Publication date: December 2017 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 69 Author(s): K.G. Austin, A. Mosnier, J. Pirker, I. McCallum, S. Fritz, P.S. Kasibhatla Oil palm plantations in Indonesia have been linked to substantial deforestation in the 1990s and 2000s, though recent studies suggest that new plantations are increasingly developed on non-forest land. Without nationwide data to establish recent baseline trends, the impact of commitments to eliminate deforestation from palm oil supply chains could therefore be overestimated. We examine the area and proportion of plantations...
