Fourth science-policy dialogue in Brazil

Identifying effective policy interventions for different deforestation dynamics

Identifying effective policy interventions for different deforestation dynamics

A diagnostic framework for understanding Brazil’s deforestation frontiers and policy interventions

4 May 2023, 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. (GMT-3), online

The science-policy dialogue series of CIFOR’s Global Comparative Study on REDD+ (GCS REDD+) aims to share knowledge and exchange perspectives to support policymakers and stakeholders in reducing forest loss.

The fourth Brazil science-policy dialogue will present recent work on the diagnostic framework of CIFOR’s GCS REDD+ study. This framework consists of two interrelated components to understand deforestation dynamics in the countries the project is implemented. The first component identifies different deforestation frontiers as recurrent ‘archetypes’. Secondly, the diagnostic framework builds on a typology of policy interventions aimed at reducing deforestation in tropical countries. The diagnostic framework combines these components to answer the following question: which policy interventions in which deforestation archetypes have been successful in reducing forest loss?

By participating in this workshop, stakeholders can provide feedback on the different components of the GCS REDD+, particularly those related to diagnostics, policy interventions, and scenario building.
