What’s the problem?
We have already passed the threshold for the atmospheric carbon dioxide our planet can handle. Cutting emissions by transforming our energy, transport and food systems - while stopping razing forests - is not enough. We also need to remove carbon dioxide already in the atmosphere. The only scientifically proven way to do this is by restoring natural biologically diverse forests, and nurturing trees on agricultural land. This has to be done in harmony with the people who live in and depend on forests. Respecting local customary land needs and rights will help people, wildlife and our climate.
