Using climate change revenues to grow more wood and reduce net carbon emissions : dual-purpose forest plantations (Inglês)

Indonesian forestry faces a major challenge – meeting the nation’s wood supply needs at the same time it seeks to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions. Meeting these two goals simultaneously requires actions that will increase legal wood supplies or reduce demand for forest products. The options to increase legal wood supply are limited to either growing planted forest trees – either on state or private lands – or increasing production from natural forests. To have a net emissions reduction benefit while increasing carbon stocks from either of these actions is difficult – unless plantations are established on low carbon stock areas. These dual-purpose plantations can conceptually meet the additionality tests required for all of the current forest carbon registration standards. They are on sites that are not currently planted for reasons that are generally easily defined and present net carbon benefits, particularly when soil carbon and below-ground biomass is included. Degraded land sites that have not been planted are most often too costly or too risky – costs that might be overcome by carbon project revenues.
