Biden Joins World Leaders in Pledge to End Deforestation

President Biden said the United States would contribute to an effort between more than 100 countries to end deforestation by 2030, aiming to the protect world’s forests which are critical to absorbing carbon dioxide and limiting global warming.

“We have to stop the devastating loss of our forests, these great teeming ecosystems, trillion-pillared cathedrals of nature — three trillion pillared cathedrals of nature — that are the lungs of our planet.” “Conserving our forest and other critical ecosystems is indispensable, indispensable piece of keeping our climate goals within reach, as well as many other key priorities that we have together — ensuring clean water, maintaining biodiversity, supporting rural and indigenous communities and reducing the risk of the spread of disease. Today, I’m announcing a new plan to conserve global forests, which will bring together a full range of U.S. government tools — diplomatic, financial and policy — to halt forest loss, restore critical carbon sinks and improve land management. Through this plan, the United States will help the world deliver on our shared goal of halting natural forest loss and restoring at least an additional 200 million hectares of forest and other ecosystems by the year 2030.” “I.P.C.C. tells us there is no viable future without the tropical rainforest. It is my hope that Glasgow will mark turning point, and that together we will keep the forests standing and the door open for our children and their children.”
