Forestry, Risk and Climate Policy
Keine Kurzbeschreibung vorhanden
Forests and forestry in developing countries are major sources of greenhouse gases
that cause global warming, but they are carbon dioxide sinks at the same time. They
will suffer from increasing temperatures, but they can also help humanity to adapt to
climate change. Land use decisions play a pivotal role in national development. The
book resumes over a decade of policy advice. It starts by focusing the global
frameset of forest-related mitigation activities under the Climate Convention. The
subsequent chapters shed light on the diverse underlying methodological and
economic issues. The final chapter proposes how to collect funds for tasks of global
common interest like the reduction of emissions from forests or supporting adaptation
to climate change, while at the same time strengthening the commitment of the
beneficiaries towards the international climate regime.
The book concludes that forestry as a means of mitigating climate change is special
compared to other sectors, and that environmental risks in striking the balance
between environmental effectiveness, cost-efficiency and equity are posing important
challenges. Besides identifying the key issues in climate forestry, the book offers
pragmatic solutions for the integration of forests into international climate policy.
