- About the book
DetailsNina Becker's research provides a thorough analysis of the economics of carbon sequestration from an interdisciplinary perspective on the impacts of climate change on forest resources. The analysis is based on an integrated assessment that links a climate-yield model with a profitability analysis. In specific, Nina Becker investigates tree productivity under global and regional climate change scenarios. Furthermore, she demonstrates the potential effects of increasing tree productivity on the profitability of carbon credit sales. For this purpose, she conducted a case study on teak (Tectona grandis L.f) plantations on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Nina Becker points out the potential of and future challenges for forest plantations in mitigating climate change. The book is aimed at scholars as well as NGOs and policymakers with an interest in forests and climate change.
