What were the trends in forest loss in 2022, and what factors continue to drive this loss? How did forests fare after 145 countries pledged to end deforestation by 2030?

Join us as World Resources Institute's Global Forest Watch shares its analysis of the annual tree cover loss data from the University of Maryland during a special livestreamed event at Land & Carbon Lab’s 2023 Summit.

The scientific and economic case for protecting forests has never been clearer or more urgent. Fortunately, satellite imagery and other technological advancements have made it possible to reliably and consistently monitor forests around the world.

Following a presentation of the 2022 tree cover loss data, we’ll host a discussion around forest trends and commitments, the latest developments in efforts to end tropical deforestation, and what to watch in the year ahead. The event will be interpreted into Spanish, French, Portuguese and Bahasa Indonesia.

Register to access the livestream. You’ll also get access to over 20 other Summit sessions, live and on-demand, that explore how we can harness the power of geospatial data to advance this decade’s climate, nature and sustainable development goals.
