The science is clearer than ever. Around the world, climate change is not only fueling devastating wildfires and flash floods, but also contributing to greater poverty, food and water insecurity, and spiraling biodiversity loss.
But there is still hope.
Yes, each new scientific report seems to paint an even bleaker picture of the future we’re facing, but scientists are also shouting out the solutions.
If we can achieve net zero carbon emissions, then we could stabilize rising temperatures—and maybe even reverse the trend and see some cooling. One of the best ways to achieve that is by conserving forests. Rainforests are one of our best natural defenses against climate change because of their capacity to absorb greenhouse gases.
The Rainforest Alliance has long worked with farmers and forest communities around the world to safeguard our climate-cooling tropical forests in ways that promote human rights and thriving rural livelihoods. Our global alliance also advances proven natural climate solutions like reforestation, ecosystem conservation, and regenerative agriculture.
