The carbon sequestration potential of trees grown on farmlands of Punjab has been estimated on the basis of data collected from 60 villages. A project based methodological approach was used to estimate the sequestration potential between 2005 and 2035.
Selected afforestation and reforestation interventions have been studied in the Terai region of Uttarakhand with the objectives to assess their carbon sequestration potential, and cost-effectiveness exclusive and inclusive of carbon benefits.
Forestry CDM projects involving afforestation and reforestation offer opportunities for CO2 mitigation by removal of accumulated CO2 in atmosphere and sequester it in vegetation, soil and wood products.
Financial efficacy of a CDM forestry project for realization of carbon benefits on account of carbon sequestration service provided by the afforestation or reforestation interventions under CDM has been studied for four different sized projects.
