Synthesis: Co-benefits of Sustainable Production Forestry
Comparisons between the consequences of improved management and those of conventional logging in terms of carbon stock and biodiversity conservation were conducted in the Deramakot Forest Reserve versus the Tangkulap Forest Reserve, where lowland dipterocarp forest is the natural vegetation (see also Imai et al. 2009). In this chapter, we summarize the co-benefits of improved forest management for biodiversity conservation and carbon sequestration. We evaluate the co-benefits in terms of additionality, which is the net increment effect of the improved forest management added over 13 years from 1989 (when logging was suspended in Deramakot) until 2002 (when our analyses started) in comparison to continued high-impact conventional logging.
