Deforestation and land degradation are responsible for about 20 percent of global carbon emissions,1 and are therefore a growing focus of international climate policy discussion. Scientists have long pointed to the critical role of land use, land use change and forestry in addressing and mitigating climate change, and discussion about the use of market-based incentives (MBIs) to encourage good practice has been building for some time.
