Delivering on Glasgow: Halting and Reversing Forest Loss by 2030
At COP26 in Glasgow, 145 world leaders representing 91% of the global forest estate committed to “halt and reverse forest loss and land degradation by 2030 while delivering sustainable development and promoting an inclusive rural transformation”. If delivered, this would represent 10% of climate mitigation action needed to deliver on the Paris Agreement. However, 45% of commitments made on nature between 2019 and 2022 show little or no signs of implementation. It is vital that governments come together, hold one another to account and build coalitions of ambition that ensure we can meet global climate, nature, and development objectives. This is why governments are working together as part of the Forest & Climate Leaders’ Partnership. This event will demonstrate the range of actions that are needed and the governments that are willing to drive this ambition. It will balance the need for long term systemic reforms with proof points of national and international action that demonstrate the way forward.
