Supply chain solutions for people and forests

Over half of global tropical deforestation is caused by four commodities: soy, palm oil, beef, and pulp & paper, resulting in 15% of total global greenhouse gas emissions – more than all the cars, trucks and buses in the world combined. About half the land cleared for commercial agri-commodity expansion occurs illegally, without community consultation, consent, or adequate social and environmental impact assessments. 

To find just solutions to this crisis, 14 indigenous leaders, human rights defenders and activists from 11 countries in partnership with NGO allies Forest Peoples Programme and Both ENDS,  issued a ‘Call to Action’, and formulated a set of precise recommendations for different actors, sectors, and initiatives involved in formulating policies on sustainable trade and supporting efforts to combat deforestation.
