LURNZ Simulation Results for 2025

This paper reports the latest simulation results from the Land Use in Rural New Zealand (LURNZ) model.

The LURNZ model produces dynamic paths of rural land-use change, land-use maps, and maps of land-use change. LURNZ can also produce maps of land-use intensity and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Along with the maps, LURNZ produces tables corresponding to the maps by Regional Council and Territorial Authority.

The simulations presented in this paper project rural land use change between 2013 and 2025.
