Sunlight filters through the leafy canopy in a dense, green forest, facilitating carbon absorption and illuminating patches of a rugged forest floor.

Countries are relying on forests and soil to absorb their remaining carbon – it’s a risky way to reach net zero

Countries are betting on forests and soils to mop up their remaining “difficult-to-decarbonise” emissions to achieve their climate targets. More forests and better soils are good for nature and for adapting to climate change, but this strategy may prove a risk to the global goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions.
