Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy – Carbon in Forests: Stocks and Fluxes

Managing forests for climate change mitigation requires action by diverse stakeholders undertaking different activities with overlapping objectives and spatial impacts. To date, several forest carbon monitoring systems have been developed for different regions using various data, methods and assumptions, making it difficult to evaluate mitigation performance consistently across scales. Additionally, live woody vegetation is the largest reservoir of biomass carbon, with its restoration considered one of the most effective natural climate solutions. However, terrestrial carbon fluxes remain the largest uncertainty in the global carbon cycle.

In this upcoming webinar, Dr. Nancy Harris and Dr. Sassan Saatchi will discuss their recent findings about the status of global forest carbon stocks and fluxes since the year 2000.
