Noragric Report No. 82 by Arild Vatn, Suelen Marostica, Virgilio Viana and Victor Salviati.
"This report is an output of the project ‘Man and forests – an evaluation of management strategies for reduced deforestation' (Mana_Forest)’ led by the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU)...The aim of the project is to evaluate different management strategies undertaken to obtain reduced deforestation in tropical forests and hence maintain the various ecosystem services delivered. The concrete focus is on a set of so-called pilots for REDD+ (reduced emissions from deforestation and forest degradation) established in Brazil, DRC, Tanzania and Uganda. Therefore the main focus is at carbon storage, while effects on biodiversity are also included" [Source: the report's introduction].
