Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions due to land-use change generally show a declining trend. GHG emissions from deforestation decreased by 0.8% in 2020 compared to the previous year, with more than half, i.e. 56%, of these emissions coming from the establishment of agricultural land. In 2020, GHG emissions decreased by 6.4% over the previous year due to land conversion to built-up and related land. The largest share of emissions (56%) is due to the conversion of agricultural land to built-up and related land.
