Why Forest and Landscape Restoration?
How much is needed to solve climate change?
The IPCC special report from 2019 estimates that approximately 730 billion tonnes of CO2 must be actively removed from the atmosphere during the 21st century in order to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Afforestation and reforestation measures could remove approximately 29% of the total needed – around 210 billion tonnes.
Our FLR projects support forests in regaining their essential ecosystem services
Forests are a simple, nature-based solution to mitigate climate change.
