How Is KR 4.1 Tracking?
The world loses a football field of forest every six seconds. Our Forests key result calls for net zero deforestation by 2030, planting and restoring more trees than we log or burn.
At the Glasgow climate summit, 141 nations committed to end deforestation by 2030. We need all nations to enforce and incentivize robust forest protections. Investment and subsidies that drive deforestation must be shifted to ending it.
These funds must replace lost income for people whose livelihoods have depended on cutting down trees. With this approach, our forests can meet a kinder fate.
Data for KR 4.1 is sourced from Global Forest Watch, which reports on deforestation annually.
