Eventually, the delegates agreed that the LUCF term would apply only to changes in carbon stock resulting from active management - or mismanagement - of the forests.
This distinction might sound like little more than a terminological quibble: if trees have been planted in an area after the beginning of 1990, then that area becomes part of the "Kyoto Forest" - it can be included under the LUCF term - so what difference does it make whether it's "afforested" or "reforested"?
So apparently, that limitation to "reforestation, afforestation, and deforestation since 1990" - the current LUCF definition - may not apply here.
