Implications for sparing, sharing and caring


Published on

Drivers depend on location, time and context; Policy responses need to use the right mix of carrots, sticks & sermons; Ultimately, enlightened self-interest (caring) will have to be the primary reason to keep/promote forests & trees; In the short run a combination of sparing & sharing is needed to achieve sustainable development goals

  5. 5. Wherever we went on Sumatra we foundanger, confusion and destruction……a company responsible, entirely legally, forthe destruction of large areas of forest…Last year you planted 100 million trees,which sounds a lot, but how many ha’s didyou deforest?“Can you repeat the question?”Can I get a sense of the scale ofdeforestation from APRIL, please?“We are not involved in deforestation, ourefforts are concentrated on sustainableforest management … we are a pioneer inthe introduction of sustainable forestmanagement methods.” rainforest of Sumatra in Indonesia is steadily being turned into a giant industrial plantationthat can neither support the wildlife that lives there nor the native human population.

  7. 7. Table 1. Land cover transition matrix for six land use types, ranked by time-averagedcarbon stock; transitions above the diagonal imply a net loss of carbon, those below anet gain; depending on the operational forest definition (in the example between AF andP1), forest degradation, deforestation and non-forest degradation contribute to grossemissions, improved forest management, reforestation and restocking outside forest toC-stock gains, and the matrix as a whole to net emissions. Each cell tends to have itsown ‘actors’ (motivated by a direct benefit) but they may respond to common ‘drivers’
