Reforestation and climate change: The day after Glasgow COP26
With catastrophic wildfires continuing to rage across Southeast Europe, Brazil, United States and Sub-Saharan Africa, the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow will be the most challenging moment in international climate diplomacy since the signing of the Paris Agreement in 2015. In this framework, reforestation has been highlighted as a key element in the climate change mitigation efforts; according to a recent UN report on biodiversity and ecosystem services, reforestation can help to rewind the habitat loss that threatens the extinction of up to 1 million plant and animal species, 1/4 of life on Earth.
Right after the Glasgow summit, Greek House Davos brings together key actors and decision-makers to discuss the outcome of COP26 and suggest concrete policy recommendations to navigate the day after.
