On February 21, 2017 Winrock International announced in a press release that its scientists had published groundbreaking research on greenhouse gas emissions from a previously underestimated source – forest degradation in tropical countries.  The research was published in the journal Carbon Balance and Management in an article entitled, “Greenhouse gas emissions from tropical forest degradation:  an underestimated source.”  The new study “shows that in 74 tropical countries the amount of carbon released as a result of forest degradation is equivalent to 4.3 percent of total global emissions and almost five times greater than the emissions from global aviation.”
