🚨 Agriculture drives an estimated 75% of deforestation.🚨
Moving towards more sustainable agricultural practices is a key element of #ClimateAction.
Learn more from Rainforest Alliance πŸ‘‡Q: What do forests and agriculture have to do with climate change?
A: Everything!

Almost a quarter of all human-caused greenhouse gas emissions come from agriculture, forestry, and other land useβ€”with the main culprits being deforestation and forest degradation (along with livestock, poor soil management, and fertilizer application).

Agriculture drives an estimated 75% of deforestation. 😟

That's bad news because we need forests to capture the emissions that cause climate change. That's just one reason the Rainforest Alliance works so hard to protect and regenerate forests! We also work to make agriculture more sustainable!
