|Example=Numerous policy interventions can be studied with the linked IMAGE-MAGNET and IMAGE-IMPACT framework:
 
* Biofuel policies: Partly as an autonomous process under high oil prices but mainly driven by biofuel policies, the proportion of biofuels (so far, only first generation) in the transport sector is projected to increase ([[Banse et al., 2008]]). The model can be used to estimate direct and indirect land-use change and associated emissions.

* REDD policies: Forest protection leads to a reduction in CO<sub>2</sub> emissions from land-use change. The related opportunity costs can be used to estimate cost curves for the emission abatement that results from REDD policies ([[Overmars et al., accepted]]).

* Agricultural and trade policies can be assessed for their effects on land use, greenhouse gas emissions and biodiversity ([[Verburg et al., 2009]]).

* Measures to reduce biodiversity loss by increasing protected areas, increasing agricultural productivity, dietary changes, and reducing waste ([[PBL, 2010]]). Several biodiversity options, in a stepwise introduction, affect land and commodity prices as well as land-use change (the figure below).
