What were the trends in forest loss in 2023, and what factors are impacting these trends at the country and regional levels?  Where are the bright spots of forest loss decline, and where are the areas of concern?

Join World Resource Institute’s Global Forest Watch for an analysis of the latest annual tree cover loss data from the University of Maryland’s GLAD lab on Thursday, April 4, from 9-10 am EDT. 

Following a presentation of the 2023 tree cover loss data, we will host a discussion around the specific contexts, implications and impacts of these findings at country and regional levels.  

Register now to join the virtual discussion live or to receive a link to the webinar recording following the live event. 

We also invite you to explore the tree cover loss data, in-depth analysis and expert insights on the state of the world’s forests, which will be released on the Global Forest Review prior to the webinar on Thursday, April 4.
