Reuters: The EU must lead on natural climate solutions
"The EASAC report does highlight the importance of one natural climate solution – reducing deforestation. This is often the cheapest way to cut net carbon emissions and involves preventing the conversion of forest carbon stocks for logging, agriculture or urban development. Reducing deforestation is certainly important, but reforestation will also be necessary to achieve the level of carbon dioxide mitigation needed. Contrary to what the EASAC report suggests, here is no trade-off between the two. In fact, well-managed reforestation can actually help countries slow or halt deforestation. "
