dc.description.abstract Forests cover approximately 30 percent of the globe, and felling of forests accounts for about 25 percent of annual greenhouse gas emissions. This paper examines the long and storied history of carbon sinks in the climate change regime. In particular, it traces the positions of civil society, represented by the transnational advocacy network Climate Action Network (CAN). It explains why CAN, once vehemently opposed to carbon sinks in the Kyoto Protocol, has become an active supporter of sinks in other parts of the climate regime, including in private carbon markets. The paper uses this case to draw out the implications for the role of civil society in shaping both public and private forms of regulation. en_US
