The New York Declaration on Forests

The New York Declaration on Forests is a partnership of governments, multinational companies, civil society and indigenous peoples who strive to halve deforestation by 2020 and to end it by 2030. The NYDF outlines ten ambitious global targets related to protecting and restoring forests, which, if realized, have the potential to reduce annual carbon emissions by 4.5 to 8.8 billion tonnes of CO2 - equivalent to the annual emissions of the United States.

Launched at the Climate Summit held at UN Headquarters in New York in September 2014, the Declaration is currently endorsed by more than 190 entities including more than 50 governments, more than 50 of the world’s biggest companies, and more than 50 influential civil society and indigenous peoples’ organizations.
