Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory of Industrial Tree Plantation Production Chain in Caraga Region, Mindanao

The industrial tree plantation (ITP) sector has great potential to contribute to the country’s economic development. However, the entire business of establishing industrial forest plantations would not only contribute to increased carbon absorption but along the process, carbon is also emitted particularly from the harvesting operation down to the processing of wood products. Greenhouse gas inventory will provide data necessary in decision-making to help identify management practices and opportunities that reduce GHG emissions. • •Implementing Agency: University of the Philippines Los Baños •Target locations: Agusan del Sur, Agusan del Norte, Surigao del Sur, Surigao del Norte •Objective:

The project shall conduct GHG inventory of the industrial tree plantation production chain in Caraga Region to promote sustainable forest management and help alleviate climate change.
