Climate Change: Our Priorities

Forests: Lungs of Our Planet

Despite the fact that deforestation is the second leading contributor of carbon emissions worldwide after the burning of fossil fuels, countries currently have few incentives for preserving their forests. However, deforestation is finally gaining attention in international discussions on climate change.

The Nature Conservancy believes that addressing deforestation must be a part of a comprehensive global climate change solution that addresses all major sources of carbon emissions. We are encouraging the world’s governments to create a flexible framework that incorporates the actions of developing countries with meaningful incentives to encourage the preservation and restoration of forests.

Visit the links below to discover how forest conservation and restoration can help stem the tide of climate change, while preserving critical habitats for nature and people.
