Deforestation and Climate Change. Reducing Carbon Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation

Tipo: International
Autori: Valentina Bosetti and Ruben Lubowski
Publisher: Edward Elgar, Series on Economics, the Environment and Sustainable Development
Data: 2010


Deforestation and forest degradation have long been recognized as environmental problems, with concerns over conservation of natural habitats and biological diversity capturing both scientific and public attention. More recently, the debate over tropical forest conservation has radically shifted to the approximately fifteen percent of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that are caused by deforestation and forest degradation, and to the potential synergies from integrating forest management with climate change policies. The goal of this book is to shed light on some of the major concerns, issues and challenges related to the inclusion of forest carbon in international climate policies, as well as to illustrate some of the potential solutions and paths forward. In addition, the book describes the status of REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) in international climate policy negotiations, providing an historical perspective and highlighting the current positions of key international players that will frame the future debate at the national, regional, and international level. This volume will find a broad readership among researchers and policy makers interested in the environment, climate change and resource management.
