Tell World Leaders: Stop Deforestation by 2030

According to the 2023 Forest Declaration Assessment, world leaders have not done enough to protect forests, despite promising to halt global deforestation by 2030.

The assessment also calculated that human activities destroyed 6.6 million hectares of forest in 2022, which puts the world 21% off track from meeting the 2030 deadline. 

With every hectare of forest we lose, it pushes us further away from avoiding irreversible tipping points.

Sign the petition to tell world leaders to take necessary steps to stop deforestation by 2030. 

“That 2030 goal is not just nice to have; it is essential for maintaining a liveable climate for humanity,” said Erin Matson, senior consultant at Climate Focus and coordinator for the Forest Declaration Assessment. “We are investing in activities that are harmful for forests at far higher rates than we are investing in activities that are beneficial for forests,” she added.

We’re at a critical juncture with climate change, and it’s more important than ever that world leaders step up to save the planet. 

It’s our job to keep the pressure on. Add your name to the petition to tell world leaders to stop deforestation by 2030.
