A positive value indicates that the country has/expects net removals from LULUCF activities, taking into account the caps for forest management. It does not necessarily mean that the country intends to actually use RMUs to achieve its Kyoto commitment. The estimate of the actual effects of LULUCF activities might change in future years if better data becomes available.

Buy locally-produced fresh produce
either directly from the farmer or at a local fruit and vegetable market. Seasonal food is good for you and the environment. Cutting the number of kilometres your food has travelled and avoiding packaging reduces pollution and waste.
