Detailed illustrations of 648 pathways for Australia’s agricultural land from 2013 to 2050. Each map indicates potential land-use in 2050. In each figure, the leftmost graphs show modelled trajectories for key input variables of the Land-Use Trade-Offs (LUTO) integrated land systems model including global carbon price; projected price multipliers for crops, livestock, and oil; national electricity price projections; and mapped changes in temperature and rainfall. The rightmost charts in each figure show key LUTO model outputs including changes in the projected area of land-use and the six sustainability indicators used in this study over time. Weak (W), Moderate (M), and Ambitious (A) targets are also plotted for each indicator with the arrowheads indicating whether target achievement occurs above (▲) or below (▼) the marker. Sustainability target achievement for 2030 and 2050 at all three levels of sustainability ambition is presented in the dot matrix in the middle of each map.<div> <div> <div><a></a> <br> </div> </div> </div>
