This study reports on the change in carbon stock following different management regimes including Sustainable Forest Management some 20 years ago as part of the Natural Forest Management Pilot Project (NFMPP) in Nakavu, Fiji.

Currently, the most important result is that the area under Sustainable Forest Management regime seems to contain only slightly less carbon (2.5% less, in average over the felling cycle) than the untouched control areas which remain in their natural state.
