Potential carbon mitigation and income in developing countries from changes in use and management of agricultural and forest landsEssex University, 2001This paper explores the opportunities for mitigating atmospheric carbon emissions and generating development income in developing countries through a combination of sustainable agricultural practices on existing lands, slowing tropical deforestation, and reforesting degraded lands.The analysis shows that over the next ten years, forty-eight major tropical and subtropical developing countries haDocumentOECD Development Centre, 2002Human activities are contributing to global climate change, especially through the emission of greenhouse gas (GHG). In order to address this environmental challenge, the international community is attempting to slow the emissions growth and to adapt to this new situation.DocumentCanadian Forestry Advisers Network, 2001Report on project in Honduras aimed at assessing the potential for carbon sequestration through both establishing new plantations and conservation of existing forests.DocumentWorld Resources Institute, Washington DC, 1998Highlighting the contention that climate change itself is a major threat to biodiversity this report argues that protecting biological diversity may, in fact, help mitigate other impacts of climate change.DocumentInternational Global Atmosphere Chemistry Project, 1999DocumentBrookings Institution, 1995This paper summarizes the debate on the costs and benefits of regional and global action to reduce future emissions of greenhouse gases. The paper also presents new evidence on possible future global emissions of carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels where these emissions are disaggregated by major developed and developing country regions.Document
Technologies, Policies and Measures for Mitigating Climate Change: technical paper for IPCC working group 2Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, 1996This Technical Paper provides an overview and analysis of technologies and measures to limit and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and to enhance GHG sinks under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (FCCC).Document
Carbon Taxes - Their Macroeconomic Effects and Prospects for Global Adoption - A Survey of the LiteratureInternational Monetary Fund Working Papers, 1998Many industrial countries have agreed to binding reductions of greenhouse gases under the Kyoto Protocol. A carbon tax is one of the most efficient instruments available to achieve this objective. While such a tax could generate substantial revenue, it could also reduce the rate of economic growth, worsen the distribution of income, and erode the competitiveness of a country.s exports.DocumentHarvard Institute for International Development, Cambridge Mass., 1999Land and forestry-based activities could in principle play important roles as climate change mitigation strategies. In practice, however, several questions have been raised about their feasibility. Therefore, understanding the processes and determinants of land use changes is critical.
