Keeping 1.5°C Alive: Closing the Gap in the 2020s, version 1.0, published by the Energy Transitions Commission in September 2021, defines afforestation and reforestation as: “The planting of new forests on land not currently under forest cover. The forests remove carbon from the atmosphere as they grow.” (Definition from UK Committee on Climate Change (2018), Biomass in a low-carbon economy.)
