Combating deforestation and climate change
Global deforestation is one of the main causes of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. In 2014, the New York Declaration was signed, which included a commitment to halve forest loss by 2020. But, far from being fulfilled, the rate of deforestation has not stopped increasing.
At the last COP26, 141 countries representing 90% of the world's forest area, including Brazil, Canada, Russia, Norway, Colombia, Indonesia and the Republic of Congo, expressed their commitment to stop investing in practices harmful to the atmosphere from 2025.
The Repsol Foundation Chair of Energy Transition at the University of Barcelona and KPMG invites you to this webinar in which we will discuss the importance of forests to mitigate climate change and the need to advance in the implementation of the latest agreements in the fight against deforestation.
