Global efforts in mitigating climate change are increasingly important as more evidence of climate change impact is apparent. Reducing carbon emissions under the United Nations’ reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, conservation of carbon stocks, sustainable management of forests, and enhancement of forest carbon stocks (REDD+) have multiple implications for climate change mitigation and sustainable development. However, implementing REDD+ project requires understanding of the magnitude of emissions in the absence of project activities (baseline) and vice versa (projectline). This study attempted to estimate carbon emission reductions by reducing deforestation in dry mixed deciduous forests in Popa Mountain Park in Myanmar. Baseline deforestation was determined using the 1989-2005 forest cover data, while carbon stocks were derived from forest inventory data. Our results show that about 25% to 63% of forest area in the study site will be lost between 2013 and 2043 if no REDD+ project is implemented. Our study results suggest that managing4220 haof dry mixed deciduous forest in Popa Mountain Park could reduce emissions of about 104023.8 - 241991.0 tCO2 over a 30-year project cycle or about 3467 - 8066 tCO2 annually depending on deforestation rates. In terms of carbon revenues, the project would generate about US $349503.3 - $846968.6 per 30 years or US $11650.1 - $28232.3 annually depending on the assumption of carbon price. It is therefore important that carbon financing be made available to protect the forests in the Popa Mountain Park as well as other parts in Myanmar.

Floristic Composition, Diversity and Stand Structure of Tropical Forests in Popa Mountain Park  [PDF]

Abstract: Safeguarding biodiversity is an important component of the REDD+ scheme of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Information on tree species and their distribution is therefore needed for successful implementation of forestry carbon projects. Forest inventory data were collected in four natural forests located in Popa Mountain Park, Myanmar. Based on the data from 4-ha sample plots, average stem density ranges from 1293 trees ha-1 in dry dipterocarp forest to 804 tree ha-1 in dry evergreen forest. According to the Jackknife estimator for species richness (trees with DBH ≥ 5 cm), the highest number of species was recorded in dry mixed deciduous forest—74 species ha-1, and the lowest number of species recorded in dry forest—40 species ha-1. Dry mixed deciduous forest occupied the highest value on the Shannon-Wiener index and Simpson diversity index while the lowest was in dry forest, indicating that dry mixed deciduous forest is the most complex whereas dry forest is the simplest community. Not only does this study provide useful information on the current status of vegetation type but the information is important for designing forestry management systems that could result in biodiversity conservation and carbon emission reductions.

Abstract: This study purposes to find a practical method to increase the number of sugar-palm (Tao) trees and restore thecommunity forest in northern Thailand. The experiments dealt with three aspects of sugar-palm seedlings. These were: 1) tofind the most efficient method of propagation, 2) to search for the best way for separation and transplantation, and 3) to findthe best growth promoter. This project was conducted from October 2005 to June 2007 at San Charoen Village, Pha ThongCommunity, Tha Wang Pha District, Nan Province. The results were as follows: Firstly, trimming both ends of 36-month-oldsugar-palm seeds provided the shortest period of germination. As a side benefit, it was easier to peel the seeds out of thefruit. Secondly, the most efficient way of separating seedlings was transplanting them immediately with their one leaf cuttwo-thirds off. Spraying with water every two hours during the first week guaranteed 82 percent of survival of the seedlings.Lastly, 15-15-15, 13-13-21 and 46-0-0 fertilizer formulations promoted the growth of one- to three-year sugar-palm seedlings.These seedlings produced more new green emerging leaves than the unfertilized plant. However, when economics areconsidered, the non-fertilizer application gave a better net benefit than the three fertilizer formulations. Therefore, we recommendthat the sugar-palm be planted in community forests in northern Thailand using plenty of water, with a propertillage practice, and without costly fertilizer. We also imply that farmers will be more confident in restoring their sugar-palmforests using this technique because they have an active role in the research project.
