|Time||10:00 AM – 12:00 PM (GMT+9, Seoul time)|
P4G, ‘Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030,’ is a global initiative launched in 2017 to address the most imminent challenges that our planet faces: responding to climate change and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
The Republic of Korea, while effectively fighting against the pandemic, is also keen on fulfilling our promises to climate action. Korea has doubled its commitment to the Green Climate Fund and updated the NDC to a more ambitious level. Korea’s determination for a low-carbon future was also highlighted in the government’s recently pledged Green New Deal initiative and the 2050 carbon neutrality goals.
Resonating the success of the inaugural P4G Summit in Copenhagen, Denmark, the Republic of Korea will host the 2021 P4G Summit in Seoul in May 2021. The theme of the 2021 P4G Seoul Summit is “Green Recovery and 2050 Carbon Neutrality.”
Through AFoCO’s side event at the P4G Summit, AFoCO with its partners will explore the role of forests in contributing to the global net-zero emission ambition through a panel discussion and provide an opportunity for state and private sector leaders to better understand the mitigation potential of the global forests and promote investments in the forest sector.
The Side Event will also soft launch the Landscape Partnership Asia Program with its founding partners, Asian Forest Cooperation Organization (AFoCO), Center for International Forestry Research and World Agroforestry (together: CIFOR-ICRAF). and Global EverGreening Alliance (GEA).
