Description
 
Emissions of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, come primarily from the consumption of fossil fuels and from deforestation. The destruction and degradation of forestland, caused mainly by expanded agricultural activity in tropical developing countries, currently accounts for an estimated 12 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. This report examines challenges that affect whether actions to preserve forests could make a cost-effective contribution to reducing global emissions of greenhouse gases. It also discusses the pros and cons of approaches that the United States and other developed countries could take to promote forest preservation. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.
