Leakage and spillover effects of forest management on carbon storage: theoretical insights from a simple model

Magnani, Federico; Dewar, Roderick; Borghetti, Marco


Leakage (spillover) refers to the unintended negative (positive) consequences of forest carbon (C) management in one area on C storage elsewhere. For example, the local C storage benefit of less intensive harvesting in one area may be offset, partly or completely, by intensified harvesting elsewhere in order to meet global timber demand. We present the results of a theoretical study aimed at identifying the key factors determining leakage and spillover, as a prerequisite for more realistic...[Show more]
