THE TIPPING POINT: Solutions from the Inside Out


21 Sep - 23 Sep 2021
SESSION

The transition to deforestation-free family farming in the Amazon as a strategy to reduce deforestation: the case of Peru

In this two-part session, we highlight the challenges and opportunities of deforestation-free import regulations in regions where commodities are produced by smallholder farmers, such as coffee and cocoa in Peru. Panelists will first discuss how the EU plans to prevent forest-intensive products from entering its market, and how actors along the value chain (including companies, governments and farmers) are planning to meet compliance and reduce risk. They will then proceed to map strategic opportunities within the policy and wider institutional context for advancing the process at scale, along with priorities to generate them, and progresses so far.
