THE NEXT DECADE IS CRITICAL FOR HUMANITY AND FOR OUR PLANET'S CLIMATE, FORESTS, AND DIVERSITY OF LIFE.
Climate & Forests 2030 is a set of resources aimed at mobilizing the funding needed to protect forests so forests protect us. Forests and lands already absorb about a third of global fossil fuel emissions each year. Protecting and restoring forests can increase the amount of carbon pollution they absorb - with an estimated 20% of emissions reductions needed to achieve a 1.5-degree future coming from forests and land use.What Can Funders Do?
