$1B ‘LEAF’ Coalition is a Game-Changer in Fight to Save Tropical Forests, Support Indigenous Communities, and Meet Paris Climate Goals

At the Leaders Summit on Climate today, US, Norway and UK and nine leading companies announced a groundbreaking coalition to mobilize at least $1 billion this year for large-scale forest protection and sustainable development.

The Emergent Forest Finance Accelerator, LEAF Coalition (Lowering Emissions by Accelerating Forest finance) is a ground-breaking example of the scale and type of collaboration that is needed to fight the climate crisis and achieve net-zero emissions globally by 2050 says US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, John Kerry.

The rainforests absorb carbon through photosynthesis and can make up as much as one quarter of the most cost-effective climate solution by 2030. Deforestation must be stopped if we are to achieve the world climate goals.

Tropical forests have received far less attention and finance than they deserve. Today the LEAF Coalition takes a first, crucial step to change that says Norwegian prime minister Erna Solberg.
