Halting Deforestation & Conversion from Agricultural Commodities

Tropical Forest Alliance (TFA), Food and Land Use Coalition (FOLU); FAO; WWF; WRI; Good Growth Partnership; Green Commodities Programme; WEF; The Nature Conservancy; UN-REDD Programme; GIZ

The aim of the coalition is to bring together a broad group of producer and consumer countries, companies and international organizations committed to working together to deliver deforestation- and conversion-free food supply chains as part of a new model of agricultural production that optimizes food production, enhances rural livelihoods, and protects and restores the natural environment.

This coalition aims to work with like-minded countries and organisations involved in the ‘nature-based solutions of production’ action area of the Food Systems Summit, as well as partners engaged in other action areas set out by the summit to deliver on the Post Summit agenda, including national pathways. It also seeks to contribute to the support of ‘halting deforestation & conversion from agricultural commodities’ as a growing global norm in the food system and help drive action to achieve this.

At the national and subnational level, there is already work underway in a number of countries on this agenda, including Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Ecuador, Paraguay, Argentina, Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, Liberia, Indonesia, China, Germany, Canada and EU. These are supported by different organisations including WEF (Tropical Forest Alliance), UNDP (Green Commodities Programmme), UNDP/CI/IFC/UNEP/WWF (Good Growth Partnership), FAO/UNDP/UNEP (UN-REDD Programme) and others. This coalition intends to deliver impact through strengthening partnership between these organisations´ initiatives and scaling successful results up nationally and globally.
