It took 12 cops to realize that 20 is more than 0.01: avoided deforestation post-Kyoto

Export citation

It took 12 conventions of the parties (cop’s) in the UN framework convention of climate change to define and approve the rules for inclusion of small-scale re/afforestationas part of the Clean Development Mechanism –which may in the end account for 0.01% of net greenhouse gas emissions. We hope that COP13 in Bali in December 2007 can become a breakthrough on the interna-tional rules for accounting of ‘avoided deforestation’.
