Details for Carbon Emissions from Forest Degradation caused by Selective Logging in Fiji

PropertyValue
Name:Carbon Emissions from Forest Degradation caused by Selective Logging in Fiji
Description:

In this study, carbon emissions from selective logging are estimated by combining activity-related emission factors from demonstration activities with national log production data from natural forests in Fiji.

The log production in Fiji averages 62,500 m³ per year, causing emissions of approximately 252,000 t CO2. Although emissions from selective logging are modest, the activity bears the most significant potential for carbon emission reductions from the forest sector through an application of Sustainable Forest Management practices.
