Liu et al. (2024): Which Provinces Will Be the Beneficiaries of Forestry Carbon Sink Trade? A Study on the Carbon Intensity–Carbon Sink Assessment Model in China

Changxi Liu, Enjun Xia, Jieping Huang IN: Forests 15 (5), 816,

To mitigate the discrepancy between economic development levels and carbon sequestration capacities among Chinese provinces, this study presents an assessment methodology that analyzes over 100 types of natural and plantation forests using forest age and biomass expansion factors. This study presents a model that can significantly support the efforts of both China and the whole world to achieve carbon neutrality through the improved management of forest carbon sinks.
