How a novel approach to public-private forest investments can finally turn the tide on deforestation – a conversation between corporate and political decision-makers
A UNEA5 Event

5:00-6:00 PM EAT / 3:00-4:00 PM CET / 9:00 – 10:00 AM EST
Large-scale investments in the forest sector, the most mature nature-based solution, have massive potential in the fight against the interrelated climate, nature and health crises. The Green Gigaton Challenge is a public-private bid to mobilize funds for transacting at least one gigaton per year of emission reductions and removals from forests by 2025. Participants will discuss how action, finance and results can be dramatically scaled up to translate the growing corporate and political interest in forest investments into sustainable climate action.
