The Forest and Climate Leaders’ Partnership: Unpacking the FACT Dialogue, Traders Roadmap and Forest Tenure Pledge to build more sustainable supply chains and support Indigenous Peoples and local communities

This event brings together producer and consumer countries, some of the largest global traders and brands, civil society, and indigenous communities, to reflect on progress to date and explore the challenges and opportunities for turning ambition into collective action. We will assess progress on the FACT Dialogue’s Roadmap for Action, the Agricultural Commodity Companies Roadmap for increased supply chain action, and the Indigenous Peoples and local communities (IPs and LC) Forest Tenure Donor Pledge.

The forestry, land use and agriculture sector contributes 23% of global emissions. There is no net zero without removing deforestation from agricultural commodity supply chains, and there is no solution to deforestation and protecting forests without IPs and LC in the lead.

The launch of the Forest and Climate Leaders' Partnership at COP27 unites action by governments, business and community leaders to halt and reverse forest loss and land degradation by 2030, while delivering sustainable development and promoting an inclusive rural transformation.
