Leveraging agricultural value chains to slow deforestation

The synthesis paper uses case studies to illustrate how food supply chains can be changed to reduce deforestation and promote increased tree cover. The case studies include ones on:

  • Sustainability certification for palm oil in Indonesia
  • A moratorium on soy produced on deforested land in Brazil
  • Collaboration between meat processors and NGOs to avoid beef produced on deforested land
  • Silvopastoral systems for beef and dairy production in Costa Rica
  • Shaded coffee and cocoa production in Cote d’Ivoire and Ghana
  • Agroforestry for shea production in sub-Saharan Africa
