Temperate Forests

Year: 2009 Author: Riccardo Pravettoni, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Temperate forests are active carbon sinks and deforestation in the temperate zone has largely stopped. Where demand for land and/or water allows, reforestation would enable carbon sequestration and could provide other benefits including higher biodiversity and recreation opportunities.
