The purpose of the new Forests and Climate blog (http://forestsandclimate.wordpress.com) is to bring together insights and stories leading up to Forest Day 3 (FD3) at Copenhagen and beyond. Our hope is that this online dialogue can make a further contribution to global efforts to protect and conserve forests as an important resource for combating climate change, and to ensure that forests remain a high priority on the negotiating agenda at Copenhagen and into the future.
This blog will be continuously updated during COP15 with blog posts from organizations involved in FD3, as well as live updates (including photos and video) from the event during the day.
Forest Day 3 will take place on Sunday, 13 December. Forest Day 3 is hosted by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), the Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF) and the Government of Denmark. Forest Day 3 will build on the success of Forest Day 1 and 2 in helping to place forests high on the agenda in current and future climate negotiations.
