Marginal Cost Curves for Carbon Sequestration in Forests: Estimates for Boreal, Temperate, and Tropical Regions of the World

This short piece provides estimates of the marginal costs of forest carbon sequestration in all regions of the world. The regions are highly aggregated to the level of countries and in many cases continents. They are the first globally comprehensive estimates of the marginal costs of carbon sequestration through forestry actions over a 100 year period for the world. This paper very briefly provides information on the methods used to estimate the marginal costs, and it provides the data in appendices.
