More than 100 world leaders at the United Nations Climate Change (COP26) meeting promised to stop deforestation by 2030. The budget for the pledge contains about £14 billion ($19.2 billion) in public and private contributions. Some will be used as financial aid in land restoration, wildfire prevention, and native community support in underdeveloped countries. Canada, Brazil, Russia, China, Indonesia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the United States, and the United Kingdom are among those who signed the pledge. These countries cover around 85 percent of the world’s forests. Experts praised the decision but warned of 2014’s failed deforestation plan, and that results must be seen. Moreover, there are issues about properly managing an important financial commitment to such efforts. “We’re facing a climate emergency so giving ourselves another 10 years to address this problem doesn’t quite seem consistent with that,” former Rainforest Alliance President Dr. Nigel Sizer said. “But maybe this is realistic and the best that they can achieve.”
