During the Global Climate Action Launch Event, it was noted that protecting and up keeping the forests is vital to achieving international sustainable development objectives, together with battling drought and scarcity of water.

The Strengthened Action in Favor of Forests in the Mediterranean-Sahel Region in the Context of Climate Change or AFMS is a fresh idea that was mentioned.

The said program is created to aid the countries to undertake multifaceted assurances to forests, together with reworking and alleviation  in accordance to the agreement, as well as to enable funds that will aid in expanding forest supervision also to improve the flexibility of the population that greatly depends on forests.

The UN has stated that the forests are among the principal and most economical reactions present and vulnerable to climate change. States, the community, the commercial sector and native groups are exerting their efforts and binding them to save the forests and to constrain the heat to under two degrees Celsius beyond pre-industrial standards, in adherence with the objectives of the Paris Agreement.

The UN-FAO or the Food and Agriculture Organization of United Nations also commented that improved forests are imperative to promote and help many supplementary worldwide development objectives.

At present, forest dilapidation causes the increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere for up to twelve percent which is greater than the whole transport sector.

On the other hand, by ceasing deforestation, decreasing and retreating forest dilapidation, forests could provide significant aid to the resolution of climate change in the forthcoming years.
