Climate justice actors plant trees in commemoration of International Day of Forests

As we continue with the Loss and Damage Conference in Lilongwe, we also celebrate International Forest Day today. We recognize that environmental sustainability is central in combating climate change. Therefore, embracing reforestation and afforestation initiatives is key to securing a greener future for generations to come.
