Welcome to the 1t.org US Chapter Resource Library. The Resource Library is intended to serve as a clearinghouse of tools, research, and articles to support US Chapter members in pledge implementation and collaboration in working groups, delivered in an easily accessible and consolidated library.
Forests harbour a large proportion of the Earth’s terrestrial biodiversity, which continues to be lost at an alarming rate. Illustrated by eight country case-studies, the report reviews progress and outlines the technical and policy tools available for countries and stakeholders, as well as the steps needed, to effectively mainstream biodiversity in forestry. This study is a collaboration between FAO and the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), lead centre of the CGIAR research programme on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA).
There is no tackling climate change without forests. Preserving them in the face of today’s climate and biodiversity crises is vital as they are one of the main reasons why our planet supports life. It needs to happen now and at a large-scale. Learn more in this white paper from the World Economic Forum.
The inaugural summit of the 1t.org US Chapter took place in Washington, D.C. on June 22–24, 2022. This was an opportunity to bring together leaders in the United States who are actively furthering the 1t.org goal to conserve, restore, and grow one trillion trees globally by 2030. The event was attended by over 140 participants from the 1t.org US community. Corporate, non-profit, governmental, and community leaders presented their bold plans for scaling private and public ambition. Analysis of summit outcomes informed the development of Nine Key Strategies that will be leveraged in the coming year to increase action and raise ambition toward meeting the 1t.org US goal.
