Tropical Forest Symposium

08 September 2021
10.00 AM - 13.00 PM CEST

Our ONE WORLD depends on forests! At the upcoming COPs in Kunming and Glasgow, the conservation of tropical forests must become a focus of political attention. An appropriate share of climate and biodiversity funding must be dedicated to forests, as they are important carbon sinks. This requires a fair deal between tropical forest countries and the international community. In preparation of the upcoming UN conferences Dr. Gerd Müller, Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development, together with key stakeholders of international forest policy, would like to present and discuss effective approaches to forest protection. Please follow the link in the headline for the agenda and join the conversation via live stream on Wednesday, 8 September 2021, 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. CEST. The event will take place in German, English and French. Simultaneous interpretation will be provided. During a Q&A session, spectators will have the opportunity to participate in the discussion via chat.
