Abstract

Forests sequester large amounts of carbon and are important for nature conservation. These functions can be important in contributing to targets set by the Kyoto Protocol of the United Nation¿s Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Convention on Biodiversity (CBD). This report lists possible measures to increase the capacity of forest ecosystems to act as carbon sink. The most promising options are evaluated quantitatively in terms of carbon and qualitatively in terms of biodiversity.
