This journal article addresses goals 14 and 15 by discussing how the terrestrial world is experiencing high rates of land conversion despite growth of the global protected area network.
Although more attention on the roles of trees in climate mitigation is a good thing, history and science caution that the impacts of tree-related interventions depend on a host of social, political, and ecological factors. These factors are raising concerns that some of the new private-sector support for trees could be misdirected to activities that are suboptimal or even counterproductive to stated goals.

It is clear is that much of the world’s kelp forests have declined, creating broad concerns about the ramifications of this destruction both in terms of additional emissions and in terms of loss of valuable services. Kelp forests are important and vulnerable ecosystems that are changing rapidly, but they exist out of sight for many people and are rarely considered in global strategies to combat biodiversity loss and increase carbon sinks.
Mangrove forests are found on sheltered coastlines in tropical, subtropical, and some warm temperate regions.
