Carbon sequestration capacity enhancement and economic policy implications for Liping County, China, through integrated assessment.

Published 2005 .
Written in English.

About the Book

The threat of global climate change has put intense pressure on China to practice sustainable development, with one element being emissions reductions. One method to compensate for these emissions is through carbon sequestration, specifically by planting trees. However, besides modelling the amount of carbon sequestered, a complete view of the system is required, combining physical sciences and remote sensing with forestry, economics, and social geography. This research attempts to model the complexity of planting trees to increase China's carbon sequestration potential. With the use of Integrated Assessment (IA) methods to link different fields of study, a more complete picture of the problem and potential solutions can be developed, in contrast to examining the problem of carbon sequestration from a single discipline. This IA model shows that reforestation can be a viable development option for carbon sequestration, but additional work is needed to enhance the IA model.
