Meet the majestic Bengal Tiger of India! 🐅 These powerful predators are known for their striking orange and black stripes, which provide camouflage in their forest habitats. Poaching for their fur and bones, as well as habitat loss, threaten their populations.

The countdown is on… 🌍

By Feb 2025, countries must submit updated national climate plans (NDCs).

But what are NDCs and why are they crucial for #climateaction?

The #Bonn Climate Summit ended with key talks on #Article6. A key question was whether countries should issue carbon credits (ITMOs) before or after Biennial Transparency Reports. Issuing too early risks making them worthless.

Stay tuned for the latest updates leading to #COP29.

Changing weather patterns threaten agriculture, human health, livelihoods, economies, as well as wildlife.

According to @TheWCS, protecting tropical forests remains the most effective way to prevent climate change.

Discover 6️⃣ reasons why forests matter🌳⬇️

As #Bonn wraps, CfRN ED Kevin Conrad highlights the need for adequate climate finance, voluntary carbon market issues, and national-scale carbon credits that ensure atmospheric integrity.

Yesterday, the @OECD released figures showing $115.9 billion in #ClimateFinance for developing countries in 2022, a 30% increase from 2021. Promised in 2009 to reach USD 100B annually by 2020, we are behind. Let's push for more ambitious #ClimateFinance. https://bit.ly/3yOiu0o

Ecosystems such as forests, peatlands, & coastal wetlands all play a role in naturally storing high levels of carbon. Protecting these ecosystems is necessary in order to ensure the well-being of future generations.

We're heading to the #BonnClimateSummit from June 3-13, 2024! On the agenda: negotiating Article 6 post #COP28 deadlock, refining global stocktake processes, and setting high standards for #CarbonMarkets. Stay tuned for updates!

Today, we celebrate Earth's incredible biodiversity! We work to protect rainforests & the species they harbor at the national scale under the Paris Agreement. This #BiodiversityDay, support our mission & protect species like the endangered forest elephant: https://bit.ly/3yti2EZ

Together, we are stronger. 🌳💪 With over 50 rainforest nations united, we amplify the voices of those who bear the weight of a crisis they did not create. Our forests are our future, and together, we advocate for the change needed to protect our planet.

Exciting Milestone: #Eswatini has submitted its first Forest Reference Level (FRL) to the UN, marking a key step in its climate action under the REDD+ initiative. Great work by the team in gathering extensive land use data from 2000-2022 using the CfRN Land Use App! 🌳📊

Happy Mother's Day! Just as mothers play a pivotal role in guiding & inspiring their children, our rainforests are guardians of the planet. We invite you to reflect on the strength and wisdom imparted by the remarkable women in our lives and the earth we all share.

🌳 Leading the way in forest conservation, CfRN provides expert, free advice to rainforest nations. Our team of ex-ministers and negotiators offers 20+ yrs of climate treaty insights, helping shape decisions under the Paris Agreement. #ClimateLeadership @LuckyMedinaHN @sernaHN

Agradezco al Consejo de Ministros de la Comisión Centroamericana de Ambiente y Desarrollo por el espacio para explorar oportunidades de cooperación financiera y técnica con la Coalición de Países con Bosques Tropicales en el marco de los artículos 5 y 6 del Acuerdo de París.
