Saving the World’s Forests: It’s Everybody’s Business

Linda Walker (Director of Forests; World Wildlife Fund)

This session looks at the evolution of World Wildlife Fund’s “Forest Positive” approach to forest restoration, protection and responsible management. At a time when many companies are seeking ways to better quantify the “co-benefits” of such actions, WWF is launching the world’s first-ever science-based targets for forests to help answer the question “What quantity and quality of forests need to be saved across different forest regions, in order to provide people, businesses and wildlife with the clean air, clean water and other ‘services’ we need?”
