The 25th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention on Climate Change (COP25), held in Madrid, closed on Sunday, December 15th, after two full weeks of intense negotiations. Despite going 44 hours into overtime, the Parties (197 national governments) were unable to reach consensus on the main topics, meaning they will resume negotiations at the next scheduled session in May 2020. Meanwhile, outside of the technical, jargon-filled world of the negotiating rooms at COP25, frustration grew among youth groups, civil society and NGO observer organizations, with the apparent inability of governments to respond adequately to the climate emergency.

Cinco anos após a assinatura da Declaração das Florestas de Nova York (NYDF) em 2014, os endossantes se reuniram para refletir sobre o progresso e os desafios atuais para enfrentar o desmatamento das florestas e promover a restauração e explorar soluções emergentes e sementes de esperança. Desde a assinatura da Declaração, a lista de endossantes aumentou de mais de 200 e seus 10 objetivos ambiciosos se tornaram uma estrutura global para a proteção, restauração e uso sustentável das florestas. Embora os objetivos e metas da NYDF permaneçam pragmáticos e ambiciosos, os esforços coletivos para alcançá-os não foram suficientes.
