finding 7.2 : key-message-7-2
Scientific data and peer-reviewed publications pertaining to carbon stocks and fluxes on Indigenous (native) lands in North America are virtually nonexistent, which makes establishing accurate baselines for carbon cycle processes problematic. The extent to which traditional practices have been maintained or reintroduced on native lands can serve as a guide for estimating carbon cycle impacts on tribal lands by comparisons with practices on similar non-tribal lands.
This finding is from chapter 7 of Second State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2): A Sustained Assessment Report.
Description of evidence base: Key Finding 2 is supported by findings presented in the First State of the Carbon Cycle Report (CCSP 2007) and resources on carbon programs in the United States (NICC 2015), deforestation in Mexico (Deininger and Minten 1999), and the First Nations Carbon Collaborative in Canada (IISD 2010, 2011).
New information and remaining uncertainties: Uncertainties result from a lack of in-depth studies and technical reports documenting carbon stocks and fluxes on tribal lands throughout North America.
ProvenanceThis finding was derived from figure P.2: P.2. Likelihood and Confidence Evaluation
