Third edition of the New York Declaration on Forests (NYDF) Progress Assessment report to be released early November 2017

Climate Focus, in collaboration with the NYDF Assessment Partners, is currently working on the third edition of the New York Declaration on Forests (NYDF) Progress Assessment Report, set to be released in early November 2017. The report will provide an in-depth analysis of progress towards the climate-finance goals of the NYDF – financial support provided to forest emission reduction strategies (Goal 8), and rewards for action (Goal 9). The report builds on the 2015 NYDF Assessment Framework and Initial Report and 2016 NYDF Progress Assessment Report, which focused on Goal 2 – eliminating deforestation from agricultural commodity supply chains.
