“In the struggle to limit global warming to 1.5o C, as enshrined in the Paris Agreement, carbon sequestration in natural ecosystems play an outstanding role. It is vital to protect primary forests, halt deforestation and peatland degradation, and restore lost and degraded forests in a sustainable and participatory manner, while strengthening the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities”.
