Carbon sequestration and trace gas emissions in slash-and-burn and alternative land uses in the humid tropics
The overall objectives of the Climate Change working group of the Alternatives to Slash-and-Burn Programme (ASB) were to determine those land use systems that sequester more carbon and reduce trace gas emissions . The research consisted of three activities: a) collect strategic information on changes in carbon stocks and land use; b) develop a database on trace gas fluxes from different land use systems; and c) assess land rehabilitation techniques for increasing carbon sequestration. These activities were conducted through the collaboration of various international and national institutions. The main findings from these research activities are presented in this study.
