  3. 3. Historical Value of Forest Carbon MarketsSource: Ecosystem Marketplace/Forest Trends (2011)
  4. 4. My ‘Take-Home Message’It’s time to stop shading the costs of forest conservation. Actual costs= acknowledged costs (internalized) + often hidden social damages (externalized) Obscuring the latter is strategic in the short term, but can undermine conservation efforts in the long term. This is unacceptable for both practical and ethical reasons.
