This week, world leaders at the UN’s summit on climate change are pounding out commitments to limit global heating to 1.5C, the target set by UN scientists. The stakes couldn’t be higher: We absolutely must cut our emissions drastically—and quickly—if we hope to stave off a climate catastrophe.

The Rainforest Alliance has proven that these approaches can increase carbon storage and avoid emissions, while creating better livelihoods for rural communities. No plan to limit global heating can work without scaling up these proven solutions. Listen to Gowland’s impassioned explanation of why that is so to learn more.
