AbstractThe overall objectives of the Climate Change Working Group during Phase II of the Alternatives to Slash-and-Burn Programme (ASB) were to determine those land-use systems that sequester more carbon and reduce trace gas emissions. The research consisted of three activities: 1 Collect strategic information on changes in carbon stocks and land use, 2 Develop a database on trace gas fluxes from different land-use systems, and 3 Assess land rehabilitation techniques for increasing carbon sequestration
