The Big Picture
In this installment of the Resilience Dispatch, I wanted to share with you an overview of Forest Trends’ strategy over the next several critical months.
It has not been an easy year. But I see a number of positive signals that 2020 is not going to be a lost year for climate or biodiversity, as many people initially feared.
I see the resilience of our partner communities in the face of incredible pressure from COVID, fires, and illegal deforestation. I look at the evidence that companies and governments are not backing down from their climate pledges, despite the pandemic. I see climate justice and equity issues at the center of the climate debate, instead of at the margins, and real progress toward inclusive climate strategies.
I feel momentum gathering. We are poised at the beginning of a very busy, very critical time. This Dispatch takes a moment to reflect on the big picture.
As always, stay in touch, and stay well.
