    Context

    In Costa Rica, the role of forests in climate change adaptation and mitigation is widely acknowledged and various political and financial mechanisms have been developed to support ecosystems in facilitating adaptation processes and act as carbon sinks that directly contribute to mitigation. However, there is a lack of instruments to facilitate access to information for improving the decision-making process for climate change adaptation and mitigation when it comes to the management of forests and associated ecosystem services.

  • Forest management techniques for mitigation (REDD+)

    Type: 
    Technology
    Sectors:
    Objective:

    Several forest mitigation options exist: afforestation/reforestation, Deforestation and forest degradation, forest management for carbon stocks and wood products. The IPCC notes that when properly designed and implemented, these forestry mitigation optiosn should provide substantial co-benefits in terms of employment and income generation opportunities, biodiversity and watershed conservation, provision of timber and fibre as well as aestethic and recreational services (IPCC, 2007).

    Publication date:
    Objective:

    The Tropical managed Forest Observatory (TmFO) aims to assess the impact of logging on forest dynamics, carbon storage and tree species composition at regional level in the Amazon basin, Congo basin and southeast Asia. To do this, TmFO is carrying out a meta-analysis based on data provided by existing permanent sample plot networks set up by the research institutions involved inÍTmFO. The permanent sample plot networks ofÍ TmFO gather 29 experimental sites, 372 plots representing an area of more than 900 ha.
