Safeguarding the Trees of Life: Uniting Climate and Biodiversity Agendas

Protecting the planet and the people 

Join this roundtable to explore the paramount role of forests in achieving climate and biodiversity goals and their alignment with the COP15 roadmap. With a rich diversity of landscapes such as the Chinese bamboo forests, Mexico's iconic Chapultepec, the vast Amazon rainforest, the Sahel acacia savannas or the Brazilian caatinga and mangroves, forests are key players in climate adaptation, species preservation, and carbon storage. In this session, international experts and practitioners will showcase innovative projects that actively preserve forests and foster coexistence between nature and humankind. Discover how these initiatives elevate community engagement, shape local regulations, and enhance governance for effective conservation. You will also gain insights into projects financing, nature-based solutions worldwide and learn about protecting women defenders of the environment. Dive into multi-faceted and actionable endeavors addressing the intricate interplay among biodiversity, climate, and sustainable development.
