Long-term Impact Assessment of CEC’s Work on Forest Carbon (2013–2017)

Description

The forests of North America play an important role in the global greenhouse gas balance by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, storing it as “forest carbon” in forest ecosystems. Between 2013 and 2017, the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) invested C$770,000 in two 2-year projects focused on generating scientific information to improve our understanding of the role of land cover, land cover change, and forestry in the North American carbon cycle and identify opportunities for improved land management and climate change mitigation activities and their impacts on greenhouse gas (GHG) balances.
