New science shows that natural climate solutions-based on the conservation, restoration, and management of forests, grasslands, and wetlands-can deliver up to 37 percent of the emission reductions needed by 2030.

Of these, reforestation is perhaps the most promising solution. Political commitments to use reforestation as a climate strategy are growing rapidly-as of September 2017, 114 countries had pledged to reforest 162 million hectares, an area half the size of India. 

However, few pledges have been turned into action. 

Impact

To achieve reforestation at a scale that will make a difference, CIFF is supporting The Nature Conservancy (TNC) to work with local and global stakeholders, and collaborators to develop the Reforestation Accelerator-an ambitious project to catalyse the sustainable reforestation of 150 million hectares of forests-with the potential to sequester 2 billion tonnes of carbon emissions per year by 2030.
