Road Map for Dealing with Non-Permanence in LULUCF and REDD (2010)

To date the land use sector has failed to contribute to achieving climate mitigation goals in proportion to its potential. A major reason for this is the lack of a sufficiently robust and attractive solution to the non-permanence (reversibility) of carbon stocks that would garner stron support from Annex-I country stakeholders, including carbon market investors. Unless a solid solution to the reversibility problem is developed, REDD+ will also fail to result in significant increase in the use of forests to mitigate climate change.
