Analysis of Factors Influencing Forest Carbon Sequestration Project in Guangdong Province and Recommendations

Through designing questionnaires for farmers in the project area, the understanding and the utilization of carbon sink forests were surveyed. In the form of stratified sampling, 150 representative forest farmers were selected from the project area for survey. Through the survey, it found that many factors hindered the progress of forest carbon sequestration project in Guangdong Province. Besides, the implementation of this project was influenced by both natural and social factors. As to the natural factors, natural disasters for the forest carbon sequestration project in Guangdong Province mainly include typhoons, rainstorms, landslides and mudslides. The social factors of the forest carbon sequestration project in Guangdong Province mainly include the weak willingness of forest farmers to participate, the low awareness of forest farmers for forest carbon sinks, the single and insufficient source of afforestation funds, and the single afforestation model. In order to better implement the forest carbon sequestration project, Guangdong Province can take measures such as strengthening the publicity on forest carbon sinks, expanding channels of funds, organizing forest carbon exchange training courses, and diversifying the afforestation models.
