The Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment organises a webinar panel discussion next 25 March (from 12:30pm to 2:00pm EST) entitled on the role of trees and forests in the climate solutions portfolio.
An international initiative to prevent deforestation and restore forests has sparked interest in how land use and forestry can be a part of a portfolio of climate solutions. Effective protection and management of forests can help decrease carbon emissions and increase carbon uptake, slowing climate change.
The answers to the questions of where, how, and how much can this help are far from clear. Leading experts will discuss the opportunities and challenges for protecting and expanding forests to capture and offset carbon emissions in the United States and globally.
