Human use and conversion of tropical forests

Year: 2009 Author: Riccardo Pravettoni, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Tropical forests hold the largest terrestrial carbon store and are active carbon sinks. Reducing emissions from deforestation and degradation is a vital component of tackling dangerous climate change. In addition, tackling illegal and ill-managed logging will be an important part of reducing emissions from forestry.
