GHG Control in the Forestry Sector Afforestation and forestry management practices that have the potential for maximizing carbon sequestration at the lowest net cost should be the focus of government support. Policies to encourage private investment in the forestry sector are especially important, including improvements in rural capital markets, further price reform, clarification of property rights, and liberalization of foreign trade and investment policies. Technical assistance or technology transfer can also help expand China's fast-growing high-yield plantation program and improve silviculture techniques, nursery management, and forestry research and extension.

Some of the conclusions of this study may need to be revised as more information about climate change, its effects, mitigation options and technologies, and China's economic development path becomes available. 1 The greenhouse gases that have been estimated in this reportCO2, CH4, and N2Ohave been added based on their heat-trapping properties, or "global warming potential" (GWP). For an explanation of the use of GWPs, see Climate Change, The IPCC Scientific Assessment, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, (Cambridge University Press, 1990).
