Country: 
Poland

Poland commits to increasing carbon storage in its forests. This commitment will contribute to the stabilisation of CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere. Poland aims to achieve this commitment through the possible establishment of a national market system for carbon credits. This system will facilitate the sale of credits that reflect the carbon offset by forestry projects. As a first step, Poland will consider a climate policy framework that creates forestry projects and establishes a national market for carbon credits.

The commitment falls under focus area 3 of the Batumi Initiative to enhance ecosystems and ecosystem services as part of ecological infrastructure. 

Implementing partner includes State Forests. 

The commitment is relevant to SDG 15.
