    This paper examines strategies for carbon sequestration, and how this is provided for under the Kyoto Protocol, with particularly attention to Malaysia's carbon sequestration strategies. Carbon sequestration is a significant technique that plays a major role in bringing down global warming. Since it is comparatively cost effective and multi beneficial, "Annex 1" countries of the Kyoto Protocol have shown their interests in initiating carbon sequestration projects with Non-Annex 1 countries.

    According to this study, organic carbon and soils of the world comprise the bulk of the terrestrial carbon and serve as a major sink and source of atmospheric carbon. Increasing atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHGs) may be mitigated by increasing carbon sequestration in vegetation and soil. The study attempted to estimate the biomass production and carbon sequestration potential of different plantation ecosystems in north-western Himalaya, India.
