The study was conducted in Dudhwa Tiger Reserve (DTR), India and identified that the value of carbon sequestration potential of the forests was estimated at 1.11 billion which is 11% of the total economic value of DTR. The value arising from the other ecosystem services provided by the forests was estimated at 9.46 billion which is 89% of the total economic value of DTR.
