“Without healthy forests, our chances of protecting the planet’s biodiversity and overcoming the threat of global climate change are greatly reduced. At ClientEarth, we use the power of the law, in the EU and internationally, to strengthen forest governance and tackle deforestation issues in order to protect both people and the environment on which we all depend.”
