Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 156973285X, Paperback)

As policymakers prepare to implement the limits on greenhouse gas emissions called for in 1997 Kyoto Protocol, this timely report considers the role of forests and land use in protecting the earth's climate and biodiversity. Prepared in a collaboration between World Resources Institute and IUCN-The World Conservation Union, the report focuses on the ways in which forests and land-use change can both exacerbate and mitigate climate change. It identifies opportunities the Protocol presents for the conservation, improved management, and restoration of forests, and it explains why the role of forests has proved controversial. Finally, the report identifies key decisions ahead in industrial and developing countries to seize these opportunities for climate, forests, and biodiversity.
