Forest Safety: Working Against the Threat of Wildfires

Wildfires in Canada have claimed 3.3 million hectares of land so far this year, including 2.2 million hectares of managed forest land, spreading smoke across the continent. However, it is not just the release of emissions from the fires that are a cause of concern, but the continued reduction in the carbon sequestration capacity of Canadian forests. 

Invert Insights:

While national trends regarding carbon sequestration may be discouraging, there is still potential for improvements through individual projects aimed at protecting and enhancing carbon sequestration capabilities. To achieve this goal, it becomes crucial to implement improved forest management practices within project lands, focused on proactive measures that minimize the risk and severity of wildfires.

Climate Change is the World’s Top Security Threat

According to the US special presidential envoy for climate, John Kerry, the climate crisis is one of the top security threats that affects the entire planet. “It is a crisis that today causes countries billions of dollars each year, which we spend to not now prevent but clean up the mess. Most importantly, it has caused lives, it is an active threat to the livelihood and the peace of people everywhere.”

To effectively tackle climate change and achieve global climate targets while mitigating its effects, it is crucial to accelerate the implementation of various actions. These include, international cooperation, reduced reliance on fossil fuels, forest conservation and reforestation, technological innovation, among others.
