With their ability to capture and store carbon, forests contribute to global climate regulation and to climate change mitigation. Reforestation makes it possible to increase carbon stocks in ecosystems. Reducing deforestation -which represents between 15 and 20% of global GHG emissions -is a way to conserve existing stocks. While this ecosystembased climate mitigation cannot solve the problem alone, it can complement efforts made in other sectors such as energy, industry, housing and transport.
