Trade and the EU Deforestation-free Regulation
The EU has issued a new law to prevent companies from placing commodities linked with deforestation and forest degradation, onto the EU market, or exporting them from the EU. The session will focus on navigating the EU’s new regulation, status quo, implication and the way forwards for global trade, environment and smallholder by bringing insights from the consumer and producer countries, CSOs (Civil Society Organizations) and research organizations. The session will highlight palm oil and timber as case studies.
