Economics of Carbon Sequestration in Forestry

The introductory section of this book overviews the conceptual and economic issues involved in the international concern over greenhouse gases and global climate change, as discussed at a May 1995 workshop held in Bergendal, Sweden. Next, five working group papers consider carbon sequestration in conjunction with proposed solutions to balance carbon mitigation and forest management goals. Twenty individual papers further examine such options and methods to evaluate their economic and environmental impact.
