In celebration of this year's International Day of Forests, WEA Co-Director Kahea Pacheco will join the World Economic Forum for a timely discussion on scaling up forest protection and restoration.
At COP26, world leaders promised to end deforestation by 2030. To reach this goal, forest protection and stewardship efforts must center the needs and leadership of Indigenous communities who have sustainably stewarded our worlds forests for generations.
Learn more about WEA's Women and Forests initiatives, which empowers women's leadership to protect and steward forests and communities.
