This report quantifies the annual carbon emissions associated with current rates of annual disturbance in New Zealand’s pre-1990 and post-1989 forests, within the context of the Durban Agreement. The Durban Agreement includes definitions and a suggested approach to deriving the baseline level of natural disturbance, but the relevant best practice guidance is yet to be finalised. This adds a significant element of methodological uncertainty.
