Land management for emissions offsets on Indigenous lands

This report describes research on the possible generation of greenhouse gas offsets derived from Indigenous land management. Land management practices can sequester carbon or change emissions regimes, and with access to markets, a change in carbon stocks or emissions may be sold as an offset. Biophysical, economic, and institutional conditions set limits to these possibilities. (Heckbert et al., 2008). The report can be downloaded from this site (PDF 2.61 MB)
