Methodology:

* Forests data were calculated as the sum of two categories in Table 2-8: “Forest Land Remaining Forest Land” and "Land Converted to Forest Land".
* Urban forests data were calculated as the sum of two categories in Table 2-8: “Settlements Remaining Settlements” and "Land Converted to Settlements".
* Croplands and grasslands were calculated as the sum of four categories in Table 2-8: “Cropland Remaining Cropland”, “Land Converted to Cropland”, “Grassland Remaining Grassland”, and “Land Converted to Grassland”.

* Data were plotted as stacked bars * Labels were added to indicate "Carbon dioxide stored" or "Carbon dioxide released"

Processes

How the source was modified: Data were multiplied by negative one, so that positive values indicate net sequestration and negative values indicate carbon dioxide released.
