Deforestation is a critical issue for both people and the planet. This event aims to provide new insights into deforestation and highlight the role of international regulations in developing deforestation-free supply chains. Collaboration across sectors is essential to effectively reduce deforestation and promote sustainable livelihoods in tropical forest regions.

The event will highlight recent global developments, such as international forest and biodiversity commitments, as well as the newly adopted EU deforestation law on trade with forest risk commodities. The programme will also include discussions on regional, national and local developments and capacity to enable a sustainable and equitable transition in tropical forest regions. The Amazon will be the main tropical region in focus, but speakers and panelists will also share developments and lessons learned from other regions.

In-person participation is encouraged for this event, but a hybrid option will be available for those unable to travel to Lund. Join us for an informative and engaging discussion on deforestation and the path to a sustainable future for tropical forests.

This event is part of a lunch to lunch networking event June 12-13 for Focalimembers and those interested to join the network. For more information please contact:
