NEW: The UN Forest Podcast

podcat copy - Copy.jpg

As cities and communities around the world scale up efforts to cut emissions and prevent dangerous climate change impacts, one area that is often overlooked is trees and forests.

We tend to take forests for granted, underestimating how indispensable they are for everyone on the planet.

Each episode of The UN Forest Podcast features special guests and speakers who bring you insights on forests as our strongest allies in fighting climate change and creating a sustainable future for ourselves and generations to come.

Whether you are a forest expert, city planner, passionate about nature or simply an interested citizen, The UN Forest Podcast will inform, inspire and make you realize that the potential of forests goes beyond trees. We all are rooted in forests.
