Title: Exploring the Potential of Obtaining Carbon Credits for Restoration Activities on Navajo Tribal Forest Lands

Author: Huang, C.H., Sorensen, C.D.

Subject: Carbon, Carbon sequestration, Economics, Tribal

Abstract: Economic development in forested rural areas is a key component of ecological restoration activities in the frequentfire forests of the Intermountain West, and nowhere is economic improvement more sorely needed than on the region’s numerous Native American reservations. In this ERI white paper, we analyze the potential of improving the economy of the Navajo Nation (Diné Bikéyah) through the sale of carbon credits for carbon sequestered in its Tribal forests.
