Can Planting Trees Fix the Climate? The Role of Forestry in the Climate Solutions Portfolio
Description: EII’s Dan Nepstad joins a panel of experts for a webinar examining the role of trees and forests in the climate solutions portfolio. Recent global initiatives to slow the loss and speed the recovery of forests has led to heightened interest in the role of land use and forest management in slowing climate change. But answers to the questions of where, how, and how much this can help are far from clear. Hosted by the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, this webinar will explore the opportunities and challenges for protecting and expanding forests to capture and offset carbon emissions in the United States and globally.
