Description
British Columbia's forests and forestry products have a large impact on provincial emissions, through both their ability to store and release carbon into the atmosphere. This course discusses the opportunities to manage forests and wood products with the goal reducing emissions, and how climate change impacts could interact with carbon-focused forest management goals.
Forest carbon research improves our understanding of the role of Canada’s forests in climate change. This understanding is required to develop climate mitigation and adaptation strategies in the forest sector. It is an important component of overall global carbon cycle science, which is needed to help us understand global change and predict future climate conditions.
The course features temperature and land use data that can help countries to map out systems useful in reducing gas emissions and curb the numbers to address climate change.
