520 1 _ a| The potential of forestry-based C sequestration is examined, using the case of the Scolel Té project in Chiapas, southern Mexico, which began in 1996. In addition, the main sources and levels of variability in estimates of C sequestration of farmer-selected forestry and agroforestry practices implemented at a regional scale are addressed. The Scolel Té project is unusual in that the International Federation of Automobiles has been buying C storage in forests in and near rural communities to offset the C emissions from Formula 1 race events. Concern over global warming and the increases in atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases that are linked to it have led to a variety of similar initiatives to reduce or offset fossil fuel CO2 emissions under the Clean Development Mechanisms of the Kyoto Protocol. Many emitters have determined that forest-based C offsets are cheaper than reductions, and in many cases forestry-related activities in tropical countries are particularly attractive because of the low costs of land and labour: where the dominant agricultural land use is only marginally profitable, small payments can produce substantial changes in land use, from farms to forests.
