Description

The world’s forests are essential to life, but face a range of threats, not least the rising demand for agricultural products and timber from a growing global population. In this short film, global leaders – from heads of state and CEOs to NGOs and representatives of indigenous peoples – share their perspectives on what can and must be done to end deforestation while increasing food security, and call on leaders from all communities to endorse the New York Declaration on Forests launched at the UN Climate Summit 2014 on 23 September 2014.
