    We review seven certification systems for verifying carbon trading from forestry and other land uses, and evaluate evidence of their effectiveness in generating social and environmental co-benefits. Published research on non-carbon co-benefits was located by searching the three principal bibliographic databases in this area of science: CABI, ISI Web of Science Core Collection and SCOPUS. We included studies published in English from 2000 to 2016. Our searches yielded 679 studies after duplicates were removed.

Recently, there has been growing research interest in the object-oriented image classification techniques. The object-oriented image classification consists of multi-dimensional features including object features and thus requires multi-dimensional image classification approaches.

    This paper points out some defects of the current forest register and proposes a concept of next-generation forest register from the view point of GIS application to forest management. Since the fundamental purpose of the GIS is to conduct spatial analysis of multiple thematic maps, one of the basic requirements for the next-generation forest register is the management of forest information on a thematic map basis by using the spatial analysis function of the forest GIS. The main proposals are as follows.

    policy came into being in 2002 and covers all types of
    forests. It has the following key objectives: (i) harnessing
    the potential of forests to reduce poverty in a sustainable
    manner; (ii) integrating forests effectively into
    sustainable development; and (iii) protecting vital local
    and global environmental services and values. The policy
    enables the bank to fully engage in forestry throughout the
