NEFA: … focus attention on forests.

Forests are the most biologically diverse ecosystems on land and accommodate more than 80% of the terrestrial specifies of animals, plants and insects.

Forests cover 30% of the earth’s surface and are vital habitats for millions of species, they are sources of clean air and water, and of course crucial for fighting climate change.

A study from the UN shows that forests actually can lift one billion people out of poverty and create additional 80 million green jobs.
