Abatement costs for transition from undisturbed forest to other land uses

Year: 2011 Author: Riccardo Pravettoni, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Opportunity costs for the transition from forest to other land uses between 1994-2009 in Tripa and 1990-2009 in Batang Toru are shown. For the transition to the most profitable land-use a price of slightly more than USD 10 per tCO2 would have been sufficient to offset opportunity costs in Batang Toru. For Tripa this value is lower because of the below ground carbon stocks in the peatlands.
