The Prince of Wales is to urge world leaders to take an integrated approach to tackling the problem of the destruction of the planet’s rainforests.
Prince Charles will stress to the statesmen and politicians, gathered in Norway for a major climate change conference, to focus on the drivers of deforestation such as agriculture.
Tackling current rates of deforestation, which contribute around 17% of annual global emissions, requires incentives to make forests worth more standing than chopped down and cleared for crops or cattle.
