Abstract: The announcement of Canada’s intention to ratify the Kyoto Protocol will result in increased attention to strategies for reducing net greenhouse gas emissions. Biosphere greenhouse gas management is a three-pronged climate change strategy that involves increasing carbon sequestration through biological sinks, preserving existing stores of terrestrial carbon, and producing biomass as a substitute for fossil fuel. This paper reviews briefly the rationale for biosphere greenhouse gas management and describes the emerging international legal regime. The place of this strategy within recent policy papers issued by the federal and Alberta governments is then noted. Finally, the paper highlights four areas where legal and regulatory measures have a role to play in implementing biosphere greenhouse gas management.
