[WEF] To tackle deforestation we need to focus on land use. Here’s why

[WEF] Stopping deforestation is crucial to cutting carbon emissions and the impacts of climate change. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found that 23% of global greenhouse gas emissions in 2007-2016 came from agriculture and land-use change, approximately half of which is due to deforestation. The crowning achievement of the COP26 climate conference in November 2021 was the Glasgow Leaders’ Declaration on Forests and Land Use, for which 145 countries, including the US, China and EU member states, committed to halt and reverse forest loss and land degradation by 2030.
