Carbon, biodiversity & ecosystem services:
exploring co-benefits

Country Profiles

A series of short country profiles were created as a first step in exploring the potential for co-benefits of carbon management for climate change mitigation under REDD+ in 12 countries of tropical Africa. They address the following questions:

These preliminary analyses are based on regional and global data. Any future work should be conducted in close collaboration with national stakeholders and institutions to ensure that national priorities are considered and best available national data are used. Further analyses could build on these first results by: improving the carbon map; integrating additional datasets on biodiversity and ecosystem services; and exploring how pressures on carbon stocks (e.g. infrastructure, mining) relate to carbon distribution.
