The Governors’ Climate and Forests Task Force (GCF) aims to reduce carbon emissions by slowing tropical deforestation and degradation. The GCF Task Force comprises states and provinces in Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Indonesia, Ivory Coast, Mexico, Nigeria, Peru, Spain, and the USA.
The GCF takes the position that state and provincial governments, in collaboration with civil society partners, can play an important role in promoting low-emissions rural development.
