Forests cover almost one-third of the world’s total land area and they have a unique potential to produce multiple global environmental benefits such as: biodiversity conservation, carbon sequestration, and protection against desertification. Forest ecosystems have also a broad potential to play a key role in helping people in developing countries adapt to the effects of climate change.
The purpose of the project is aimed to raise wider awareness of the positive outcomes, the human dimension, and the economic, ecological, social and governance improvements resulting from these efforts. The videos’ common narrative, proposed by CAD Productions, is supporting and documenting countries initiatives in turning their contributions to global climate mitigation targets into reality. The videos present successful stories that implement activities that reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation.
