Join CIFOR-ICRAF at COP26
We need to act now if we are to halt the global climate crisis. The UNFCCC estimates that by 2025, emissions will be almost 60 percent higher than in 1990, making this year's COP in Glasgow critical for our future. CIFOR-ICRAF will be on the ground and online with science-based evidence and nature-based solutions. With more than 65 years of global experience working on integrated solutions involving people and nature, CIFOR-ICRAF will look critically at the forests and landscapes discussions in Glasgow while showcasing solutions, including climate-smart agriculture, renewable energy, carbon monitoring, building climate-resilient rural communities and developing natural resource-based economies. Join us.
