In the era of scientifi c advancement, technological upliftment, and
modernization, poor people of the country still depend upon wood for
their primary energy source. Up to the nineteenth century, wood was
irreplaceable as the most important fuel and raw material for construction,
agriculture, crafts, and shipbuilding. Assessments of the scope for greenhouse
gases (GHG) mitigation through wood ... [Show full abstract] use at the different levels can
be done with a combination of approaches from different disciplines.
Treatment of carbon stored in harvested products varies among international,
national, and voluntary project-based mitigation programs, and to
recognize carbon storage in wood products within international protocols
has been ongoing for the past several years. The role of carbon sinks in
harvested wood products (HWPs) is generally accepted, and one of the
themes discussed in the negotiations of a post-2012 agreement is the
possible inclusion of HWPs in accounting of CO 2 emission after 2012.
In the present paper, we are discussing about the various national and
international value-added wood products for storing or preserving carbon
for a long time and ultimately useful option for mitigating climate change.
