PUBLICATION: Who Owns Carbon in Rural China?
To ensure the long-term success of China's carbon sequestration programs while addressing welfare of the affected rural poor, it is essential for China to continue its reform efforts on several fronts. Most importantly, the security of farmers’ rights over forestland and trees should be bolstered and adequate compensatory regimes established for farmers affected by carbon sequestration programs. This report covers these topics in depth.
An RRI publication analyses the legal regime and practices and offers preliminary policy recommendations. Download here.
