Assessing the Potency of Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park for Carbon Sequestration Project
MetadataShow full item record
The addition of greenhouse gases and aerosols has changed the composition of the atmosphere. The changes in the atmosphere have likely influenced temperature, precipitation, storms and sea level (IPCC, 2007), then will give huge impact to environment and humankind. To mitigate and to adapt the impact, most country in the world are agree to collaborate and give their commitment to decrease GHG emission, conducting reforestation/afforestation, and reduce deforestation. There are a lot of opportunities provided by developed countries for developing countries to gain additional revenue by conducting mitigation and adaptation activity. One of the opportunities is carbon trading through reforestation. Indonesia has huge potency to implement reforestation project. Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park is one of the potential sites which is has eligible land for implementing carbon sequestration project is about 1134.5 ha, refer to CDM mechanism. The proposed reforestation project activity will reforest the land with Casuarina junghuhniana and Acacia deccurens. The activity will sequester around of 1.262.648 T CO2e during twenty years, this value shows that Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park has high potency for carbon sequestration project. Such activity is nice as a contribution of Indonesia to mitigate and adapt the climate change impact.
