Assessment of the importance of forests in reducing global climatic change (counteracting and mitigating the impacts of greenhouse gases)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Poland is a small country with forest cover of ca. 28%, which constitutes very small portion of the world total. The potential for Polish forest ecosystems to mitigate the greenhouse effect on a global scale and in relation to a whole Earth threatened by CO2 concentrations, is not significant and could from this point of view be neglected. But, from the domestic point of view and in the light of the obligation under the Kyoto Protocol, forest, forestry and wood utilization present a high interest for the environmental policy and an important element in the national development strategy into the 21st century
