Description - Climate Change and Forests by Charlotte Streck
Once the province of think tanks, academics, and global agencies such as the UN, climate change has finally penetrated the world's consciousness. To date, international attention has focused primarily on the industrial and energy sectors. However, the agriculture, forestry, and land use sector is a major driver of the climate change problem and, thus, must be an integral part of the
solution. In this wide-ranging volume, international experts explain the links between climate change and forests, highlighting the potential role of this sector within emerging climate policy frameworks and carbon markets.
