At the World Economic Forum she leads engagement across the Platform for Accelerating Nature-Based Solutions, including 1t.org (Trillion Trees Platform) which serves a global movement to conserve, restore and grow a trillion trees over the coming decade and the Natural Climate Solutions Alliance (NCSA) which convenes stakeholders to identify opportunities and barriers to investment into carbon credits in new and existing markets to scale up financing for natural climate solutions.
