IPCC Fourth Assessment Report: Climate Change 2007
Climate Change 2007: Working Group III: Mitigation of Climate Change

9 Forestry

Since the TAR, new mitigation estimates have become available from the local scale to the global scale. Major economic reviews and global assessments have become available. There is early research into the integration of mitigation and adaptation options and the linkages to sustainable development. There is increased attention on reducing emissions from deforestation as a low cost mitigation option, one that will have significant positive side effects. There is some evidence that climate change impacts can also constrain the mitigation potential of forests.
