We are at a critical point for the future of the planet.
We need to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by mid-century to keep global temperature increases under 2°C. While most efforts toward this goal have been focused on reducing fossil fuel use, new science shows that natural climate solutions—based on the conservation, restoration and management of forests, grasslands and wetlands—can deliver up to a third of the emission reductions needed by 2030.

A study completed by our global affiliate and 15 other institutions revealed that better stewardship of the land in places like Canada's boreal could have a bigger role in fighting climate change than previously thought.
