The Equator Initiative accomplishes this through three action areas. the Equator Prize,the Equator Dialogues and Equator Knowledge. which is a research, documentation, and learning program. The case studies are part of Equator Knowledge. The New York Declaration on Forests is a global agreement to halve forest loss by 2020 and end it by 2030. The NYDF Global Platform is hosted by the Global Programme on Nature for Development at UNDP, in collaboration with Meridian Institute, Climate Focus and Climate Advisers.
