Photos: Protest at World Forestry Congress in Durban

As the World Forestry Congress begins on Monday September 7, 2015 in Durban, Greenpeace calls on the delegates to take action to protect the Congo Basin Forest.

Governments and corporations must back up their words with action to achieve ambitious global targets to combat deforestation, the group insists.

Greenpeace International Executive Director Kumi Naidoo delivers a keynote address and activists hold banners outside the meeting which read “Stop Forest Crime in the Congo Basin.”

The World Forestry Congress is the largest and most significant gathering of the global forestry sector.
