More than 100 countries agree to end deforestation by 2030

During the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference, more than 100 government leaders committed to strengthening the fight against global deforestation. The organizers of the Glasgow summit said that according to the relevant declaration adopted on Tuesday, November 2, deforestation should be stopped by 2030 as part of the fight against global warming,- DW reports.

The Declaration was supported by more than 100 countries, which account for over 85 percent of the world's forests, including boreal coniferous forests (taiga) in Canada, the Amazon rainforest in Brazil and tropical rainforests in the Congo Basin. The agreement provides for the allocation of about $ 20 billion (17 billion euros), part of which will be used to fight forest fires and restore already damaged forest areas.
