93% Bos, 100% Surinaams
We believe striving to keep 93% forest is 100% Surinamese. Don’t you?
At COP-23 in Bonn, Germany, the Suriname Government pledged to work towards keeping 93% forest cover, forever. At the same time, the Government indicated they would need the help of the global community to be able to achieve this goal mainly in the form of financial compensation and capacity-building.
Forest93 is a national campaign in the Republic of Suriname to sensitize the public on the many values of our nature. The campaign focuses on creating awareness on the need for legislation, creating innovative tools for new ways of data-collection that will be shared with national research institutes and policymakers, and sharing information on nature and its many benefits to Suriname, our kids and our joint future.
