General Overview for a Backcasting approach of Livestock Intensification (GOBLIN) (Version v1.0) Colm Duffy, Remi Pruhomme, Brian Duffy, and David Styles

Short summary
The GOBLIN (General Overview for a Backcasting approach of Livestock INtensification) model is a new high-resolution integrated bottom-up biophysical land use model capable of identifying broad pathways towards climate neutrality in the agriculture, forestry, and other land use (AFOLU) sector. The model is intended to bridge the gap between hindsight representations of national emissions and much larger globally integrated assessment models.
