Just before this edition of the Tropical Forest Update went to print, a historic agreement on climate change was struck in France, and forests are now at the very top of the global environmental agenda. In the Paris Agreement, almost all the countries of the world agree to hold the increase in global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.

The ITTO Tropical Forest Update is published quarterly in English, French and Spanish; the French and Spanish editions are usually posted about a month later than the English.
