The Global Forest Project
Trees CO2

The Global Forest Project ("GFP") is a Canadian led initiative, arising from the Young Champions for Nature Summit, Montreal, 2019 to create a global government partnership through the United Nations ("UN") to plant BILLIONS OF TREES. The GFP is a transformational initiative to demonstrate global co-operation in climate action. Canada and other high forest potential countries are invited to join together to contribute land to host the GFP. Foreign countries with the least forest potential due to incompatible climate, and in particular those with the highest GHG emissions, are invited to fund the cost of the GFP's tree planting and forest management.

Cetaceans and Cetacean Research in the Indian Ocean Sanctuary - Marine Mammal Technical Report Number 3
United Nations Environment Programme

The contributions in this volume represent some of the work that has been (or is being) carried out on cetaceans in the Indian Ocean. The limitations of the research documented will be apparent. We believe, however, that they do provide a useful background to any plans to increase and direct research on cetaceans within the Indian Ocean. From the review papers it is clear that the Indian Ocean is home to a tremendous variety and abundance of marine mammals. From research reports it is clear that there are numerous opportunities for meaningful research.
