Criterion 5: Maintenance of forest contribution to global carbon cycles


This criterion reports on the role of Australia’s forests in the carbon cycle​, including the amount of carbon stored in Australia’s forests, and the effects of natural disturbance, forest management and forest land-use change on forest carbon dynamics. It also reports the amount of carbon stored in wood products.
