🌳🤝 Delving into REDD+ ITMOs, our latest report offers clarity on this key climate solution. See how countries' commitments to forest conservation turn into action via a robust framework. For a deep dive into the REDD+ process, check our guide: https://bit.ly/3UHeXd9

Thelma Krug, former IPCC vice-chair, tells @Forbes that IPCC climate reports lag by years, failing to meet the urgency of climate action. She advocates for quicker, focused reports & stronger voices from developing countries. Is it time for #IPCCReform? https://www.forbes.com/sites/kensilverstein/2024/02/12/climate-science-is-untimely-and-out-of-sync-with-national-requirements/?sh=640ad662254d

🌳💧 Trees are nature's rainmakers! They absorb moisture from the soil and release it into the atmosphere, forming clouds and influencing weather patterns globally. Studies show that air over tropical forests generates 2x more rain than over sparser areas. #ForestFacts

🛰️ 2024 will bring major strides in advancements in forest data! @planet's new forest carbon mapping tool & next-gen satellites are on the horizon. Plus look out for expanded free, universal access to high-res satellite monitoring of the tropics to @NICFISatData & partners!

A study in @Nature reveals a striking fact: Just 2% of tree species dominate half of the trees in tropical forests worldwide. Declan Cooper of @ucl states, 'Understanding these species is key to predicting forest responses to environmental changes.' More: https://bit.ly/3vDZEYl

Looking ahead post-COP28: The world gears up for implementing ambitious 2030 goals 🌳🌍. The key focus is on enforcing the Paris Agreement Articles for rainforest conservation. High standards in carbon markets are crucial for real impact.

#ICYMI: As a result of the formal #COP28 negotiations, for the first time ever, a @UNFCCC decision has officially recognized the urgent goal: "Halting and reversing deforestation and forest degradation by 2030." This is more than a policy change; it's a promise to our planet.

@UNFCCC 🌱 The Road Ahead: Achieving this goal requires more than agreements on paper; it demands action, commitment, and perseverance. We need to ensure #ClimateEquity and #ClimateJustice are at the forefront of this mission.

“The formula is simple: we need investment in modern tropical agriculture, to stop the carbon emissions and restore the ecosystem services the forests should be providing by removing CO2 from the atmosphere.”
