About this book

This book primarily considers the actions of Europe and other regions in reducing land use related greenhouse gas fluxes, while recognising that the array of economic and political pressures for CAP reform and sustainable land use are fundamentally intertwined.

"With evidence of recent global warming mounting along with the implication of increasing burning of fossil fuels, an international workshop on 'Instruments for Global Warming Mitigation: The Role of Agriculture and Forestry' was held in 1996. One result of the workshop was the assembling of this book with 22 papers contributed by 47 authors together with an extensive bibliography. The papers examine a number of complex issues involved when considering strategies to reduce emissions of methane and carbon dioxide and also increase carbon storage in vegetation and soil. This book, quite technical in places, was written for those interested in the next step: what can we or should we due [sic] to mitigate the effects of further global warming."--Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society
"The UN Convention on Climate Change requires countries to reduce their polluting greenhouse-gas emissions from all sources including agriculture, forestry, and land use. Emissions associated w
