Since the 1992 Earth Summit, there have been increased efforts on an international scale to address global climate change. Reducing the increased levels of CO2 and other "greenhouse gases," which are believed to be contributing to this climatic change, will require major effort on the part of the world's governments. This means that the environmental, economic, social, and political consequences of climate change must be understood, and that strategies to mitigate climate change must also address these issues.
The workshop detailed in this book concentrated on how economic principles and analysis could contribute to the planning of forestry projects aimed at affecting terrestrial carbon balances. More than 30 international scientists came together for one week near Stockholm, Sweden and divided into working groups charged with addressing a specific issue and preparing a paper within this time frame. This book contains the majority of papers presented at this meeting, and includes both the working group papers and the individually presented papers.

Editorial Reviews

The introductory section overviews the conceptual and economic issues involved in the international concern over greenhouse gases and global climate change, as discussed at a May 1995 workshop held in Bergendal, Sweden. Next, five working group papers consider carbon sequestration in conjunction with proposed solutions to balance carbon mitigation and forest management goals. Twenty individual papers further examine such options and methods to evaluate their economic and environmental impact. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
