Deforestation and forest degradation account for approximately 10-15% of the world's greenhouse gas emissions. Addressing deforestation is therefore critical for meeting international ambitions to prevent dangerous climate change. CDP's forests program acts on behalf of over 650 signatory investors, with US$87 trillion in assets, who wish to understand how companies are addressing their exposure to deforestation risks.

This side-event at the UN General Assembly, which is co-organized by CDP, will be an opportunity to learn more about the relationship between mining and deforestation, see new research findings on forest-smart mining, and get an overview of the New York Declaration on Forests and its Global Platform. It will highlight examples of forest-smart policies, practices and partnerships and build a shared understanding of what changes, innovations, and new initiatives may be useful to accelerate action.
