Description: SEI is evaluating the various US policy options for achieving emissions reductions and removals from agricultural and forestry activities in the context of an overall ambitious climate mitigation framework. We produced a preliminary report recommending which option ?? offsets, set asides, cap inclusion, incentives, and/or regulations – might provide greatest effectiveness, efficiency, equity, and feasibility.
