Abstract

Abstract:- Carbon dioxide is the highest emitted greenhouse gas in the world today, mostly due to fossil fuel based energy industries and deforestation. Hence, to address the issue of climate change, one of the most significant questions is how to reduce increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. One promising technology is carbon capture and sequestration (CCS), which consists of capturing carbon dioxide emissions from the sources of generation and sequestering them in deep geologic formations for long periods of time. Even though researches are carried out to crystalise this technology, there has been insufficient attention paid to develop an approach that seek to balance emissions from forest ecosystems and the management of such, with environmental stewardship and economic growth as objectives. In countries where forests account as a major player in balancing CO2, this approach becomes extremely relevant. The carbon sequestration model is a step forward in developing a complete and interconnected set of accounting practices allowing for an accurate and credible analysis of past, present, and future carbon emissions relating to forestry in the region. This paper basically looks into the ways by which global warming and the climate changes can be averted to a greater extent by the use of carbon sequestration and suggests a two-part, carbon dioxide emissionabsorption potential (CEAP) model in which all flows into and out of the system are mathematically accounted for. The model is a tool meant to be of help in the assessment and resolution of trade offs at different levels in the management to ensure sustainable and balanced climate system
