      The other high latitude countries are Canada (score 17) and Russia (score 35). Thus, the message from EPI seems to be that there is deforestation and unsustainable forestry in the north! These scores were based on the interpretation of satellite remote sensing results presented in a scientific article (Hansen et al ) published in Science. The Nordic network ERMOND, Ecosystem Resilience for Mitigation of Natural Disasters, reviewed information on natural hazards and ecosystem conditions in .

The term "afforestation" is most often used in conjunction with discussions of carbon sequestration, which is the process by which carbon dioxide is removed from the atmosphere. While afforestation can restore previously forested areas and help to remove carbon dioxide, it can have detrimental effects on species diversity and agriculture profits.

countries will be able to meet a part of their emission reduction commitments under the Kyoto Protocol [1] by financing Reforestation and Afforestation activities (AR) in developing countries through the clean development mechanism [2]. The maximum amount of commitments that can be met through AR activities in developing countries is.

Potential AR-CDM project developers in tropical countries will require, among other things, full access to relevant information and capacity-building programs for the design of project activities.

To help them in this, in late ITTO initiated a project (Building capacity to develop and implement afforestation and reforestation projects under. Afforestation is the establishment of a forest or stand of trees (forestation) in an area where there was no previous tree cover.

Many government and non-governmental organizations directly engage in programs of afforestation to create forests, increase carbon capture.

Sometimes special tools, such as a tree planting bar, are used to make planting of trees easier and faster. Forecasted/reported afforestation programs: 1.

Afforestation: Policies, Planning and Progress Paperback – 15 Dec In many countries the forest area has rapidly expanded (and in some cases more than doubled) during the present century.

About Forestry in Northern European countries The Nordic countries Finland, Norway and Sweden, are among the most important producers of forests and forest products in the world. Denmark and Iceland are in the process of intensive reforestation of their land area and where Denmark now have an important outcome from their forestry.

This statistic shows the ten countries with the largest areas of afforestation, as at China had an increase of over million hectares in that year. Grant-aided field afforestation has been an instrument for agricultural production control in Finland since the late s.

Strong regional variations in the intensity of field afforestation activities have occurred in Finland, dependent upon variations in the level and direction of regional and local socioeconomic development, the physical structure of agriculture and the life-cycle stage of Cited by: 4.

Socio-economic importance of ecosystem services in the Nordic Countries. Accordingly, having developed countries fund afforestation in developing countries is regarded as a part of efforts to reduce CO2 emissions.

But afforestation still does not have a clearly defined place in joint implementation (JI) and the clean development mechanism (CDM). AFFORESTATION - authorSTREAM Presentation. PowerPoint Presentation: is the establishment of a forest or stand of trees in an area where there was no forest.

is the artificial establishment of forests by planting or seeding in an area of non- forest land. Afforestation is a special form of agriculture called silviculture.

Afforestation is the commercial planting of trees on land that once had forests e.g. the Highlands of Scotland. Only a few species are grown, they are harvested when they are full grown for timber and making paper.

Methods Study region and reforestation programs. The Philippines is one of world's seventeen mega-diverse countries (Mittermeier et al., ) and is one of the world's most threatened biodiversity many other Asian countries, the Philippines lost its forest cover rapidly through heavy logging, upland migration and agricultural expansion over the last Cited by: The study suggests the principles for locating field afforestation in rural landscapes in the scenically most appreciated way.

When drawing conclusions, it must be remembered that this case study involved only two villages in northeastern Finland located in valuable landscape by: aimed to be implemented in developing countries and has direct rele-vance to tropical forests.

It does not have any direct implication for for-ests in the Nordic countries. Nordic forest resources and carbon sinks. The Nordic region, with over 61 million ha of forests, is rich in forest resources. Afforestation-The Need of the Hour. In the early periods of civilizations, large parts of our country were covered with forests.

The increase of the population of our country has led to the shrinking of forest area. The forests which purify air have been cut down and new cities and industries have been established in their place. Aarhus (/ ˈ ɔːr h uː s /, also US: / ˈ ɑːr -/, Danish: [ˈɒːˌhuˀs] ; officially spelled Århus from until 1 January ) is the second-largest city in Denmark and the seat of Aarhus municipality.

It is located on the east coast of the Jutland peninsula, in the geographical centre of Denmark, kilometres ( mi) northwest of Copenhagen and kilometres ( mi) north Country: Denmark.

The Nordic countries - Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden - have valuable experience in developing solutions that can reduce global greenhouse gas emissions and save money in the longer. The Danish forest cover is rather low, only about 12%, and yet it is thoroughly documented that the forests are extensively used for recreation.

It is believed, but only rarely documented, that the value of the forest externalities is significant.

The aim of the present research is to quantify the part of these benefits which is reflected in property values for houses close to afforestation Cited by: 1.

This regeneration practice has been examined for a number of broadleaved species within a collaborative project including forest researchers from Mississippi, Estonia, and the five Nordic countries.

Results from this work are presented, and conclusions are drawn for forest management and future research and development in this by: 2. Norway has become the first country in the world to commit to zero deforestation.

The area is particularly beloved by both nature enthusiasts and hikers thanks to the many scenic trails that lead through the woodlands.

All in all, the trails in the forest measure up to 40 kilometres in total. Deforestation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has been caused partly by unregulated logging and mining, but mostly by the demands made by the subsistence activities of a poor population.

In the east of the country, for example, more than 3 million people live less than a day's walk from Virunga National from the park's forests is used by many of those. Afforestation Statistics. Official afforestation statistics are compiled annually from the Forest Service payment database, called Integrated Forestry Information System (IFORIS).

At the end of each calendar year, those afforested areas that have received the first grant instalment are used to update the afforestation statistics. 'Reforestation' is the natural or intentional restocking of existing forests and woodlands (forestation) that have been depleted, usually through deforestation.

Reforestation can be used to rectify or improve the quality of human life by soaking up pollution and dust from the air, rebuild natural habitats and ecosystems, mitigate global warming since forests facilitate .The selection of afforestation methods is determined by economic considerations and by soil and climatic conditions.

Different methods of sowing, such as broadcasting and drill seeding, are used. Planting stock grown from seeds and obtained from cuttings is used in afforestation.In Poland, the National Program of Afforestation was introduced by the government after World War II, when total area of forests shrank to 20% of country's territory.

Consequently, forested areas of Poland grew year by year, and on Decemforests covered 29% of .
