CHALLENGE 4

Unsustainable supply and value chains

Unsustainable supply
and value chains

Despite fanfare over private-sector commitments to zero deforestation and sustainable supply chains, evidence of real change remains elusive, while global consumption of forest commodities continues to increase.

CIFOR-ICRAF work is illustrating how trade and investment can stimulate the sustainable supply of timber from natural and planted forests, sustainably increase the production of high-value tree crops and reduce the impacts of agricultural expansion into forests – all while creating opportunities for smallholders and promoting investments that safeguard the rights of women and marginalized groups.

Unsustainable value and supply chains: Fast facts

80%
of deforestation in the Amazon
is due to cattle ranching
75%
of soy production
is used as feed for livestock
50%
of supermarket products
contain palm oil
