제목 Importance of Forest Carbon Sink in the Green Economy of the Hindu Kush-Himalayan Mountain Systems
Dear All,

A paper titled "The Critical Importance of Forest Carbon Sink in the Green Economy of the Hindu Kush-Himalayan Mountain Systems" by Dr Promode Kant, presented
at the International Conference on Green Economy and Sustainable Mountain Development held at ICIMOD, Kathmandu, from 5-7 September, 2011, is now available at the IGREC website (www.igrec.in/index.html). 

The forests of Hindu Kush Himalayan region present an opportunity for both enhancement of carbon and extraction of timber and energy biomass by managing its internal dynamics adopting the most suited silvicultural practices to keep these forests young and vigorous. Community institutions are an asset in the region which enhances the value of total forest capital stock considerably. At the conceptual level Sustainable Forest Management  means that total forest capital stock, which is the sum total of natural capital stock, man made capital stock and the forest related institutional capital, must not corrode over succeeding generations subject to the further condition that Natural Capital should also not dip below the critical Natural Capital threshold. This implies that if natural forest capital can be kept above the critical threshold at all times it is possible to enhance human welfare through man made forest capital also. There is high potential for creating employment but there are many challenges in the shape of balancing carbon values with competing ecosystems services, ensuring benefits reach the primary stakeholders, avoiding conflicts among neighbouring communities over claims on forests, poor governance and difficulties in the implementation of Free and Prior Informed Consent.
