Forests: A Nature-Based Solution for
the Climate Crisis

Forests are a pre-eminent nature-based solution to the climate emergency. If deforestation is stopped and damaged forests are restored, they can provide around a third of the carbon reduction needed.

UN-REDD is a flagship UN partnership between FAO, UNDP and UNEP for the protection of forests, delivering on the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Agenda.

The impact stories below illustrate how UN-REDD has helped countries advance their protection of forests for people and the planet.
