Forest Carbon and Climate Policy Reports

Post by Richard Dudley » Tue Jun 16, 2009 7:46 pm

There are lots of sources of information on forest carbon and climate and sometimes this can be confusing. I haven't examined them carefully, but the following reports look like good sources for comprehensive summaries of these issues.

International Forest Carbon and the Climate Change Challenge: Issues and Options
A multi-author collaborative report highlighting the most promising opportunities and pressing challenges associated with the effort to bring deforestation and forest degradation into climate policy by Lydia Olander, William Boyd, Kathleen Lawlor, Erin Myers Madeira, and John O Niles.

Including International Forest Carbon Incentives in Climate Policy: Understanding the Economics
A report discussing the economic dimensions of international forest carbon payments.

These and others available from Duke U at:
