Excerpt: There are many land use activities which generate carbon sequestration and thus counteract the impact of emissions made elsewhere. Reducing deforestation, generating increased forest stocks through expansion of forestry plantations, adopting agro-forestry activities, reducing soil degradation and rehabilitating degraded forests are all examples of such measures (Tipper, 1997). With the exception of plantation establishment, any of these land use practices can be and have been adopted by low income land users, and have been shown to lead to increased incomes under certain circumstances. The mitigation potential from the adoption of these activities is quite substantial. Niles et al. (2001) estimated the total mitigation potential by geographic region from major classes of land use change occurring between 2003-2012 for developing countries, which is summarized in Table 1 below.
