A Report by a coalition of environmental organizations reveals that the world is falling short of its Pledges to end Deforestation by 2030. Deforestation increased by 4% worldwide in 2022 compared to the previous year, with 66,000 square kilometers destroyed. The world is currently 21% off track to meet its deforestation goals. Efforts to preserve old-growth tropical forests are 33% off track, with 4.1 million hectares lost in 2022. The annual $2.2 billion in public funds allocated to forest protection is insufficient, and forest degradation is a significant issue caused by logging, grazing, and road construction. However, some countries like Brazil, Indonesia, and Malaysia have shown progress in reducing deforestation.
