How does the NYDF Global Platform support endorsers and key partners?

The NYDF Platform helps to ensure that global pledges to halt deforestation and the findings of the NYDF Progress Assessment result in actions at different levels through the following activities:
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.

History of the NYDF Global Platform

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.
