Forests are responsible for around 20 percent of green house gas emissions globally, yet quantifying the amount of carbon stored in forests and the amount released into the atmosphere is one of the greatest challenges facing scientists hoping to curb the impacts of climate change. This video shows how CIFOR scientists are conducting extensive research to ensure that emission reduction interventions, such as REDD+, have a real chance of success.
