Rising to the challenges of climate change
As the world marshals to mitigate climate change, RECOFTC is working with forest communities to capture the benefits of carbon markets while reducing risk to communities and the environment.
When the Paris Agreement on Climate Change was signed at the Conference of Parties (COP21) in 2015, countries made serious, voluntary, and globally transparent commitments to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions to avert the worst impacts of climate change. Since then, the need for urgent action has accelerated. At COP26 in Glasgow in 2021, the international community reaffirmed and increased the ambitions to reduce emission levels.
