At the Intersection of Climate and Deforestation: Can We Solve Two Problems at Once?
RFF First Wednesday Seminar
November 7, 2007


While tropical deforestation is a long-standing environmental concern, the climate debate brings new attention to the value of services from forests. On November 7th, our speakers addressed the opportunities for and challenges to designing and implementing a role for forests in addressing climate change. Discussion included avoided deforestation in the context of future international climate agreements and United States' legislation on climate change, developing countries and sustainable development, the economics of avoided deforestation, and practical considerations in policy development and implementation.
