Sarinee delved into the fundamental principles, benefits, and obstacles associated with forest carbon credits. She also emphasized on the pivotal role of local communities in forest conservation to ensure forest carbon credit trading remains a genuine climate mitigation strategy, rather than a mere greenwashing tool.
