Adaptation and resilience

Forests cover 30% of the world’s land area but they are disappearing. Why are losses on the rise and who are the biggest drivers? From timber to cattle and palm & soil oil products, the demands for commodities are responsible for the majority of forest loss. Are there new tools and a faster way to tackle this? A discussion with key actors from government, NGOs and the private sector on the state of forests and the game changing ideas to ensure their survival. 

Speakers include:

  • Yulia Stange, Climate and Forests advisor, ClientEarth
