For three days, Governors and civil servants from GCF Task Force states and provinces – which encompasses more than one-third of the world’s tropical forests – joined with leaders from the private sector, civil society, Indigenous peoples and local communities, national governments, and international organizations. Together, they have highlighted collaborative strategies and approaches for reducing deforestation in tropical forest states and provinces and the interrelated goals of reducing poverty, improving livelihoods, securing rights and protecting cultures, promoting private investments, and building low-emissions, forest-based economies.
