New Report: Five-year assessment of progress on protecting and restoring global forests

Since the New York Declaration on Forests was adopted in 2014, progress on ending deforestation and restoring forestlands has not lived up to the high level of ambition enshrined in its ten goals.

NYDF 5-Year Assessment
