Monetizing A Forest

Some states and orgs that recognize the need to conserve and expand forests, but are grappling with the forest vs other options - agri/mining etc question in terms of economic value.

We’ve seen some examples of great economic linkages, but there seems to be no evidence and collected data on this for various kinds of forests/agroforestry models.

Are you aware of any such models/studies? What can help to push this further?

Carbon sinks and trading credits to be shared as a trade off for maintaining the forests!
