A b s t r a c t . A number of global land-use change and forest management models for studying CO2 emissions in land-use change and forestry, in particular: G4M, GLOBIOM, Land- SHIFT, GTM and GCOMAP are considered. The main issues and features of forestry in Ukraine (e.g. illegal forest harvesting, lack of reliable and consistent data on forestry, difference between concepts of Ukrainian and international legislation in forestry) are analyzed. A conceptual scheme for modelling forestry and land-use CO2 emissions in Ukraine is developed.
Key words: LULUCF, CO2 emissions, Ukraine, information technology, modeling.
