Forests and other lands are essential for achieving climate and development ambitions. If appropriately leveraged, natural climate solutions can contribute upwards of 37 percent of cost-effective CO Indigenous Peoples and local communities are key to achieving such outcomes. 2 mitigation by 2030,1 and evidence shows
