  • Climate change (51.59%)
  • Greenhouse gas (48.25%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Detlef P. van Vuuren focuses on Natural resource economics, Climate change, Greenhouse gas, Environmental economics and Climate change mitigation. He has researched Natural resource economics in several fields, including Future climate, Agriculture, Fossil fuel, Hydropower and Renewable energy. The concepts of his Climate change study are interwoven with issues in Scenario analysis, Renewable energy supply, Demolition and Scale.

His work carried out in the field of Greenhouse gas brings together such families of science as Global warming, Production, Climate model and Gross domestic product. His work in Environmental economics addresses issues such as Carbon dioxide removal, which are connected to fields such as Co2 removal. His work deals with themes such as Afforestation, Bioenergy and Sustainability, which intersect with Climate change mitigation.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Taking stock of national climate policies to evaluate implementation of the Paris Agreement (39 citations)
  • Taking stock of national climate policies to evaluate implementation of the Paris Agreement (39 citations)
