Poland: Carbon Forests Project

In August 2022, the State Forests of Poland launched the “Carbon Forests” project, which targets forest management to increase carbon retention in the various elements of the forest ecosystem and the ability to calculate these changes using the Canadian Forest Carbon Budget Model (CBM-CFS3). The project’s proposed activities aim to increase CO2 sequestration by forests through afforestation of non-forest and forest land, promotion of natural regeneration, introduction of undergrowth and underplanting (in stands with a canopy of no more than 0.8), and promotion of good practices in soil preparation for reseeding or restoration, which contributes to reducing CO2 emissions.
