Deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries account for nearly 20% of green house gas emissions worldwide, which is why estimating and reducing these emissions has become a key goal for the international community as the Rio+20 conference on sustainable development in June draws closer. One country attempting to do just that is Tanzania, currently in the process of drawing up a comprehensive inventory of its forests to help the East African country better manage its natural resources. More than a third of Tanzania is forested, but almost 1% of that forest is being lost annually. The inventory will measure how much carbon is stored within Tanzania's forests and will help the country to understand the role it can play in mitigating climate change.
