At COP26 more than 140 countries committed to work collectively to halt and reverse forest loss and land degradation by 2030 while delivering sustainable development and promoting an inclusive rural transformation. At COP27, the Forests & Climate Leaders’ Partnership will be launched to unite action by government, business and community leaders, and shine a spotlight on global progress towards every year through 2030. This panel will highlight the necessity for countries to engage meaningfully with business, subnational governments, and Indigenous Peoples and local communities in order to reach their commitment to halt and reverse forest loss and land degradation by 2030.
