Moreover, public sector finance for drivers of deforestation outpace sustainable forestry finance by 40 to 1, and private sector finance by 140 to 1.

Cities 4 Climate

70% of carbon emission comes from cities in four main areas: Waste, Energy, Mobility and Buildings. 
At a time when national governments struggle to take the lead on climate change, cities hold the key to solve the issue.

On September 24th in New York during the global goal week Make Sense will bring together citizens, social entrepreneurs, corporates and policy-makers who work together in the areas of waste, mobility, energy and buildings to make cities more sustainable and fight climate change.
