1. Accelerate global action on forest commitments by renewing and strengthening the NYDF partnership and other forest and climate initiatives.
2. Support endorsers and other partners to advance regional and national implementation of their pledges.
3. Ensure accountability by providing feedback and guidance informed by scientifically rigorous analysis to endorsers and partners.
The NYDF Platform was founded in 2017 in response to NYDF endorsers’ requests for a dedicated, multi-stakeholder platform to re-invigorate political endorsement of the NYDF, to facilitate coordination and communication, to share best practices, resources and lessons, and to support ongoing monitoring of progress. The Secretariat for the NYDF Global Platform is provided by the United Nations Development Programme, in partnership with the Meridian Institute and Climate Advisers. The NYDF Platform operates separately from the NYDF Progress Assessment, which is coordinated by Climate Focus.
