The world is at a crossroads regarding climate change, and some scientists warn that we are moving close to the point of no return. What we do this decade will determine the planet our children and grandchildren will inherit.

Protecting and restoring nature could provide 30% of the measures needed to limit global warming by 2030. We are helping translate LAR's climate commitments into on-the-ground actions. We are galvanizing partnerships to launch ambitious reforestation targets. We are launching creative schemes to restore reefs and floodplains and reduce the impact of rising seas and storms on coastal communities.
