Our 2020 Special Report – the third in this series already – features a broad variety of international showcase projects and sustainable business models that contribute to intact forests in very different ways. The showcases range from conservation and reforestation initiatives, to forestry and construction projects, to the fashion and tourism sectors, to capacity building and financing etc. In the context of our Post Paris Navigator initiative, supported by the Austrian Development Agency, we carefully selected projects which benefit both climate and people in developing and emerging countries. Each of the presented examples discusses local impacts and benefits as well as important enabling factors. To complement this, fact boxes and additional information on forest-related topics are provided throughout the report, as well as general success factors and policy recommendations derived from the projects.
