My Green Alliance blog: Cop21 - the world must redouble efforts to tackle deforestation

The destruction of the rainforest represents the very antithesis of UN Climate, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development Goals. The cost of continued inaction – to lives, livelihoods and our climate – is incalculable. It is imperative that Paris COP21 addresses this issue with the urgency it has, to date, been denied...

The response of global legislators in tackling deforestation with the urgency and financial backing it needs has been woeful.

I'll be taking a strong message to the Paris COP21 Global Landscapes Forum this weekend. You can read my blog for the Green Alliance on what I'll be pressing for here.
