What woodfuels can do to mitigate climate change. - Rome, Italy : Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, c2010. - xi, 83 p. : ill. ; 25 cm. - FAO forestry paper, 162 0258-6150 ; .

"Climate change can be mitigated in several ways, but most strategies emphasize reducing greenhouse gas emissions by reducing energy use and switching to energy sources that are less carbon intensive than fossil fuels. This publication explores the scope, potential and implications for using woodfuels to replace fossil fuels and thereby contribute to climate change mitigation. It analyses the current woodfuel offset mechanisms in place and their relative emission reduction potentials. The scope is limited to solid woodfuels (fuelwood, charcoal, prepared biomass such as woodchips and pellets, and recovered products or residues from wood processing industries)." --Back cover.
