Managing planted forests for carbon sequestration and biodiversity maintenance has become increasingly important in times of rapid climate change and the loss of biodiversity worldwide. Ms. Nghiem analysed private and socially optimal management strategies for planted forests, and suggested an appropriate policy for promoting multiple-use forests. Her results show that payment for carbon sequestration services of planted forests in Vietnam is feasible. Direct payments are an appropriate policy tool to encourage household forest owners to lengthen rotation ages in order to enhance biodiversity.
