Forestry for a low-carbon future: Integrating forests and wood products in climate change strategies

Resource Type: 
Description: 

Forestry for a low-carbon future: Integrating forests and wood products in climate change strategies brings together contributions from more than 100 experts on the different mitigation options offered by forests and wood products and on the enabling conditions for realizing their potential. The publication is a follow- up to the International Online Conference on the Economics of Climate Change Mitigation Options in the Forest Sector, held by FAO in February 2015. The book is designed primarily for policymakers, negotiators and other experts contributing to climate change strategies, but will also be of interest for professionals in such fields as energy, architecture and construction. Its aim is to provide elements for decisions on a policy mix that will optimize carbon emission reduction (less carbon content per unit of output) and socioeconomic benefits with the needed urgency.
