Protect rights and advance gender equality to mitigate climate change

Nature Climate Change, Published online: 06 May 2021; doi:10.1038/s41558-021-01043-4

Initiatives to protect carbon sinks are crucial to mitigate climate change and avert its worst effects. Advancing the rights of women and forest-dependent communities will strengthen these initiatives and enable them to have greater impact.

Forests in focus

Nature Climate Change, Published online: 06 May 2021; doi:10.1038/s41558-021-01050-5

In light of the urgent need to mitigate climate change, many governments and companies are looking to the natural world for help, most notably through plans to plant forests to remove carbon from the atmosphere. However, the carbon — and social — dynamics of forests are complex.

Dynamic global monitoring needed to use restoration of forest cover as a climate solution

Nature Climate Change, Published online: 06 May 2021; doi:10.1038/s41558-021-01022-9

Restoration of forest cover can curtail the climate crisis and provide many co-benefits, or waste limited resources. To use restoration of forest cover to its highest potential, global dynamic monitoring is needed that combines existing restoration projects with control plots and remote-sensing technologies.
