Climate love

For releasing a multi-purpose guide on carbon forestry

article view

The Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) has just released a very useful guide on carbon forestry, with a special focus on benefits for local communities.
The guide can be used to assess the quality of projects that aim to store carbon through tree planting, restoration or forest conservation and sell the carbon credits generated, so-called carbon forestry projects. What makes the study unique is that it has a particular focus on projects in low/middle income countries and on the potential of such projects to have positive impacts on local communities.  The guide can be used by: • customers • companies • public agencies • carbon credit retailers • developers of standards for carbon forestry projects • project developers and implementors The guide was created by scientists Flora Hajdu och Linda Engström at the Department of Urban and Rural Development at SLU.

    State and federal policies can help maximize forest carbon storage, promote sustainable forest practices, benefit the environment and support forest product industries.

                  Carbon compounds regulate the Earth's temperature, make up the food that sustains us, and provide energy that fuels our global economy.
