Land Use Dialogue: Aligning Global Efforts to Enhance Ambition on Forests in Pursuit of the 1.5°C Goal

Invitation Only

Ending deforestation and restoring forests is essential to achieving the 1.5° C goal. The forest sector maintains and ensures the long-term integrity of forest carbon stocks, strengthens the land rights of indigenous people and others, establishes safeguards for environmental and biodiversity protection, scales up finance, and further defines the role of nonstate actors. With this in mind, policymakers and the climate community must begin to mobilize more significant contributions from forests in the formulation of Nationally Determined Contributions and ensure that national and international forest policy aligns with the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Stanley Center is partnering with a coalition of civil society groups with deep expertise on land sector issues—including the Center for Carbon Removal and Environmental Defense Fund—to hold a dialogue aiming to foster alignment among the large and varied efforts on these fronts and to advance climate action in forests at the international level.
