Afforestation/reforestation (or forestation) has been implemented worldwide as an effective measure towards sustainable ecosystem services and addresses global environmental problems such as climate change. The conversion of grasslands, croplands, shrublands, or bare lands to forests can dramatically alter forest water, energy, and carbon cycles and, thus, ecosystem services (e.g., carbon sequestration, soil erosion control, and water quality improvement). Large-scale afforestation/reforestation is typically driven by policies and, in turn, can also have substantial socioeconomic impacts. To enable success, forestation endeavors require novel approaches that involve a series of complex processes and interdisciplinary sciences. For example, exotic or fast-growing tree species are often used to improve soil conditions of degraded lands or maximize productivity, and it often takes a long time to understand and quantify the consequences of such practices at watershed or regional scales. Maintaining the sustainability of man-made forests is becoming increasingly challenging under a changing environment and disturbance regime changes such as wildland fires, urbanization, drought, air pollution, climate change, and socioeconomic change. Therefore, this Special Issue focuses on case studies of the drivers, dynamics, and impacts of afforestation/reforestation at regional, national, or global scales. These new studies provide an update on the scientific advances related to forestation. This information is urgently needed by land managers and policy makers to better manage forest resources in today’s rapidly changing environments.

The book is a comprehensive manual of practice for execution of afforestation and tree planting programmes in arid and semi-arid tropics. It includes a compact running account of the technology of afforestation and the relevant principles and practices in management of afforestation projects. It provides a wide range of structured information and a number of model designs which can be gainfully put to use by the field level supervisors as also by the managers concerned with planning and control of such projects. Written by a practising specialist, the book is invaluable for anyone concerned with the practice of afforestation and tree planting, be he a tree hobbyist or a school teacher, a professional forester or a senior policy maker in government, an industrialist or a philanthropist, an environmental activist or a member of a community service organization.

This study examines landowner attitudes toward participating in an afforestation program for the purpose of carbon sequestration. Data were collected via a literature review and focus groups with private landowners in the Prairie Provinces. Results are presented with regard to perceived benefits, drawbacks, barriers, & challenges of an afforestation program. Issues discussed include potential benefits to the ecosystem, to personal income, & to agriculture; the opportunity cost & time commitment involved; carbon credit accounting; information needs; financial incentives; small- versus large-scale afforestation projects; policy tools that can encourage afforestation schemes; and key decision-making factors. Finally, the elements necessary for the success of such a program are outlined.

Science and Business of Carbon Forestry is a comprehensive guide on biodiversity, conservation and development, and regulation-related issues relevant to forests. It gives detailed guidance on the development, marketing, and financials related to projects in the forestry sector, with a focus on addressing problems related to climate change and forestry. Drawing on a wealth of information from studies across the globe, this book has been authored by a multi-sectoral team of practitioners, academics, economists, and other social/technical experts experienced in carbon markets, climate protection, forestry, project development, and environmental law. The book will serve the needs of various departments and agencies of relevant forest, agriculture, and horticulture departments, and related governmental organizations and non-governmental organizations.

As the US population increases, the need for energy sources such as electricity, petroleum and industrial processes and the resulting emissions are growing at an alarming rate. Emissions that increase the rate of global warming include carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and other greenhouse gases. This book examines current challenges encountered in attempting to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels as well as developing alternative methods of producing energy.

The World Bank's Forests Strategy, adopted in October 2002, charts a path for the Bank's proactive engagement in the sector to help attain the goal of poverty reduction without jeopardizing the environmental values intrinsic to sustainability. This strategy replaces the Bank's 1991 Forestry Strategy, and was developed on the basis of the findings of an independent review of the 1991 strategy and a two-year consultative process with development partners and stakeholders around the world. The revised strategy, Sustaining Forests, is built on three guiding pillars: harnessing the potential of forests to reduce poverty, integrating forests into sustainable economic development, and protecting global forest values. Recognizing the key role forests play in contributing to the livelihoods of people living in extreme poverty, government and local ownership of forest policies and interventions are emphasized along with the development of appropriate institutions to ensure good governance and the mainstreaming of forests into national development planning. The strategy also aims to support ecologically, socially and economically sound management of production forests by ensuring good management practices through application of safeguard procedures and independent monitoring and certification. Implementation of the strategy will center on building and strengthening partnerships with the private sector, non-governmental organizations, and other donor agencies to promote better forest conservation and management at country and global levels.
