Topic: C1. Reducing emissions and enhancing removals

J. Boone Kauffman and Daniel Murdiyarso

The module will describe the value of reducing emissions and enhancing removals of greenhouse gases related to land-use and land-cover change in tropical wetland forests.
The IPCC lists two general approaches to determine emissions from land-use and cover change, the “gain loss” method and the “stock-difference” method. In reality, a combination of both is needed to truly understand carbon dynamics, emissions, and sequestration associated with land-use and land-cover change in tropical wetlands.
