- Recently, abnormal changes of global climate, represented by earth warming, has become a common threat and challenge faced by the world, and has directly affectted the existence of the human society and its sustainable development. Kyoto Protocol allowed developed countries to provide developing countries capital and technology, in order to conduct forestation and reforestation carbon-sink program, utilize the carbon amount generated by the program to counteract emission conduct target in their countries. Therefore, forest carbon-sink transaction turned into an indirect emission reduction pattern that is widely practiced by various countries in the world. Now China doesn't have to undertake the compelling emission reduction duty, but along with the increasingly deep negotiation of the international climate, the reduction pressure becomes heavier and heavier. Therefore, developing the forest carbon-sink market transaction not only is beneficial to raise money, which is needed for forestation and increase the percentage of forest cover, but also can help to relieve the emission reduction pressure confronted by China. It has strategic significance to the sustainable development of the Chinese economy. This article discusses the theory basis to conduct forest carbon-sink market transaction, using SWOT analysis method to theoretically analyze the superiority, weakness, opportunity and challenge of the development of forest carbon-sink market transaction in China. At last, It provides some relevant countermeasures and suggestions.
