As a number of nations have transitioned from net deforestation to gains in forest area, forest transitions have become a focus of research in recent years, raising expectations for preventing or reversing global climate change. Transition drivers, enabling global policies and the ecological ramifications of forest transitions have all been the subject of this study. Reforestation and forest restoration are recognised as major contributions to climate change mitigation, particularly in the tropics, leading to global programmes like REDD+ and the increased promotion of industrial tree plantings, which frequently compete with agricultural and industrial land use change. Forest carbon sequestration has a huge potential contribution in Asia Pacific, where REDD+ initiatives are anticipated to contribute up to 40% of world sequestration.
