The Coalition for Rainforest Nations released its 2019 Annual Report today. 2019 was a landmark year for the Coalition. After 15 years of relentless work to stop deforestation, participating countries fulfilled their promise to bring emissions reductions from the planet’s tropical rainforests at a multi-gigaton level. Developed country governments, corporations, and citizens can now achieve ambitious carbon neutral goals at a scale unimaginable until recently with the help of REDD+ Paris Agreement-compliant carbon credits. And in the next few years, participating countries will bring a multi-gigaton pipeline of carbon reductions online.
“The scale of the emission reductions gives the world a real chance to tackle the climate emergency together with other climate solutions,” said Kevin Conrad, Executive Director, Coalition for Rainforest Nations.
