Forest Pulse: The Latest on the World’s Forests

  • The loss of humid tropical forests contributed 2.5 billion tons of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere last year, which is equivalent to the annual fossil fuel emissions of India — the world’s fourth-largest emitter,

  • The tropics lost 11.1 million hectares of tree cover in 2021, according to new data from the University of Maryland and available on Global Forest Watch.
