Land Use

Back to All Challenges

Land use can degrade or renew ecosystems -- and put greenhouse gases into or take them out of our atmosphere

The Land Use Sector includes the protection and restoration of high-carbon ecosystems such as forests and wetlands, as well as the production of perennial timber and biomass crops. Deforestation and degradation of forest ecosystems are responsible for about 1/8 of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions today (IPCC, 2014). Project Drawdown's research includes solutions for reducing emissions, sequestering carbon, and providing critical ecosystem services and feedstocks.
