The 'State of Play’ Assessment of Land Use in the International Policy Response to Climate Change
The purpose of this document is to provide a clear overview of how terrestrial carbon is currently being incorporated in the ongoing international policy response to climate change. The key focus is the UNFCCC and Kyoto Protocol negotiations. However, attention is also given to other global and sub-global fora generating international policy responses. The information in this report has been obtained from publicly available sources, including UNFCCC texts. It has been produced in response to an identified demand from Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) and other country officials for greater information on national policy contexts regarding the inclusion of land in the climate change solution.
