Global Platform on the New York Declaration on Forests

As of: November 2018

Objective and activities

The international community has agreed recently to highly ambitious global goals for forests, including ending natural forest loss by 2030. Forests also feature prominently in several dozen national climate plans. The Global Platform on Forests (Forest Platform) assists developing nations implement these goals and plans. The project will promote implementation through multi-stakeholder dialogue. There is currently no other global platform that has the ability to pull together disparate efforts on forest restoration, supply chains and results-based approaches to reducing emissions (REDD+). To be successful, the Forest Platform needs to have broad participation and buy-in. This foundation of support enables it to assist nations and stakeholders in setting annual goals and work plans. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Climate Advisers and Meridian Institute will help convene the Forest Platform and serve as its secretariat, building on past collaborations.
