Leaders of more than 100 countries pledged to stop deforestation by 2030 at the COP-26 climate summit in Glasgow as France24 reported.

The head of the summit, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, said that the agreement on the end of deforestation is critical to the overall goal of limiting the global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

 “With today’s (Tuesday’s) unprecedented pledges, we will have a chance to end humanity’s long history as nature’s conqueror, and instead become its custodian,” Johnson said.
