About This Webinar

As countries consider ways to increase the ambition of their current national climate plans for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, they appear to be overlooking significant opportunities in forest and land-use conservation, restoration, and management. Measures aimed at improving the ecological state of deforested or degraded landscapes through tree-planting and other means are cost-effective solutions for large-scale reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removal of carbon from the atmosphere.

During this webinar, WRI and UNDP experts will give an overview of new guidance, NDC Enhancement: Opportunities in the Forest and Land-use Sector and Ecuador's Environment Ministry will share the country’s experience and perspective, having already submitted a revised NDC in 2018, with an enhanced role for the forest sector.

This webinar is part of a series on Sectoral Opportunities to Enhance NDCs.
