Future of land carbon sinks in Norway

There has been a substantial drop in the carbon absorbed in Norwegian forests in the last decade, and if this trend continues, the carbon absorbed in Norwegian forests could turn to an emission and put conventional forest management into turmoil. What is causing the decline in carbon absorption, can it be maintained out to 2050, and how can forests be managed in a changing climate?
