To improve our understanding of the intersection between agriculture and deforestation and to garner global support for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD) within the agricultural commodities sector. Funding will be used to convene key stakeholders in the commodities roundtables and beyond, engage stakeholders in a dialogue to help deter deforestation from agricultural expansion, encourage sustainable supply chains for commodities that protect tropical forests and increase the likelihood that REDD is included in the post-Kyoto climate treaty that will be finalized in Copenhagen, 2009.

Help us spread the word.

Creating positive outcomes for future generations.
