Climate Summit: Putin signs Russia on to new deforestation commitment — from Moscow

President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, the world’s fourth largest greenhouse gas-emitting nation, is not physically present at the COP26 climate summit. But on Tuesday he signed on to a pledge by more than 100 countries to end deforestation by 2030.


“The conservation of forests and other natural ecosystems is a key component of international efforts to address global warming and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases,” Mr. Putin said in a short video address to the conference.
