The world’s forests are disappearing at an alarming rate. Forests are cut and cleared for agriculture, mining, construction and other activities. Deforestation is directly responsible for an estimated 20% of the world’s harmful Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions with forests disappearing at the rate of 5.2m hectares per year.
If deforestation was ended, in terms of carbon benefits, it would equate to taking all the vehicles in the world off the road. At the same time, healthy and productive forests soak up carbon in the atmosphere as they grow.
