Who should pay to save the rainforest?

Who should pay to save the rainforest?

About this ThinkIn

in partnership with the ANZ Coalition

This ThinkIn is taking place at The New York Times Climate Hub in Glasgow, close to Cop26. Tortoise members are able to go in-person for free. Just go to The New York Times event page, click the black button ‘Get ticket £9.99’ and use the code TortoisexNYT to book your free in-person ticket. 

Earlier this year, Gabon made history as the first African country to be paid to preserve its rainforest. Is this a funding model we should seek to replicate elsewhere? What other innovations can we introduce to cut more carbon and less wood?  Is international diplomacy and collaboration, or local empowerment the best way forward? Who’s going to take responsibility? And who will pay?

We are delighted to be partnering with The New York Times to host a series of ThinkIns at The New York Times Climate Hub in Glasgow during Cop26. We will be hosting a number of ThinkIns over eight days, continuing our investigation into how we can Accelerate Net Zero.

This ThinkIn is part of Tortoise’s Accelerating Net Zero coalition. Visit the homepage to find out more about the coalition and join us.
