Plan to Conserve Global Forests: Critical Carbon Sinks
- Incentivize forest and ecosystem conservation and forest landscape restoration;
- Catalyze private sector investment, finance, and action to conserve critical carbon sinks;
- Build long-term capacity and support the data and monitoring systems that enhance accountability;
- Increase ambition for climate and conservation action.
The plan focuses primarily on the Amazon, the Congo, and Southeast Asian forests. Subject to Congressional appropriations, by 2030 the United States intends to dedicate up to $9 billion of international climate funding to support these objectives.
Restore at least an additional 200 million hectares of forests and other ecosystems
