Global deforestation down in 2021, but not declining fast enough to meet climate targets

Global deforestation dropped by just 6.3 percent in 2021, leaving the world off track from its goals of ending forest loss by 2030 and limiting warming to 1.5 degrees C, according to a new report.

“There is no pathway to meeting the 1.5 degrees C target set out in the Paris Agreement or reversing biodiversity loss without halting deforestation and conversion,” said Fran Price, global forest practice lead at World Wildlife Fund, one the groups involved in the report.
