Climate Change and Forestry: What Policy for Canada?
AbstractOn the basis of projected global climate change, Canada is expected to experience large land-use impacts. As indicated in this paper, forestry and agriculture are likely to be net gainers from climate change, with Canada as a whole possibly gaining from global warming. Adaptation to climate change will require shifting land out of forestry and into agricultural activities. Nonetheless, cost-effective mitigation strategies will likely involve the opposite - planting trees on agricultural land. The quandary for decision makers is whether to pursue mitigation strategies that could be to the detriment of future adaptation.
