Leading Cities Partnering for Forests

Cities depend on forests and can provide immense value to forests. More than half of humanity already lives in cities, and more than two thirds are projected to by 2050. Because urban areas are increasingly where people live and work, the public policies and procurement practices of cities—as well as the values, votes, and consumption patterns of residents—have enormous potential to support the conservation, restoration, and sustainable management of forests. Many cities already support forests in some way, from parks and urban forest to “green infrastructure” and watershed management programs. Few, if any, have initiatives to support the faraway forests that are vital for combating climate change. Cities4Forests seeks to change that.
