More than 100 world leaders have signed a historic pact to halt and reverse forest loss and land degradation by 2030, in a deal that has been hailed by some observers as one of the “first major outcomes” from the COP26 Climate Summit.

The UK, the US, Brazil, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, China, Colombia, Indonesia, Canada, and Russia are among the countries to sign the agreement, which is set to be announced at a forest and land use event tomorrow at COP26 by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the UK government confirmed late last night.
