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

Large commitments, yet limited progress

The world is not on track to halve deforestation and restore 150 million hectares of forests by 2020. Escalating primary forest loss and a lack of natural forest restoration threaten the achievement of the world's climate goals.
