In Taiwan’s 4th National Forest Resource Assessments, based on a formula suggested by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the carbon storage of forests in Taiwan is 754 million tons. That is, on average, there are 378 tons of carbon dioxide per hectare in these forests. Broad-leaf forests possess the highest level of carbon storage, at 469 million carbon dioxide per hectare. These forests in Taiwan absorb roughly 21 million tons of carbon dioxide annually. Taking into account the carbon stored in forest soil and forest floors, the number can be even higher.
In terms of forests and carbon management, reducing the density of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and lessening the impacts of climate change are shared goals of the world’s governments. This can be addressed through carbon mitigation and environment adaptation. In detail, in terms of mitigation, industry frameworks may be adjusted to improve energy efficacy. This can help to reduce energy consumption.
However, the method can also bring stronger impacts to a country’s overall economy, and the costs are usually higher. Thus, speaking of carbon sequestration, building sustainable green environments, enhancing forest management, and promoting the use, recycling, and reuse of ecomaterials are the most important things to do. This is green environment management. In fact, to build a green environment, there are other ways to do - greening municipal forests, roads and industrial zones; building green architecture; tending natural forests; improving artificial forest management efficacy; improving sustainable forest yields; making better uses of forestry products; lessening harm against forests; using green products; and enhancing recycling work.
