Deforestation Free Supply Chains and Multi-Stakeholder Partnerships

As part of the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2019 in Davos Kavita Prakash-Mani (WWF International) and Justin Adams (Tropical Forest Alliance 2020) published an article concerning the 2020 commitment towards deforestation-free supply chains, thus preserving the world’s forests. This target was agreed upon by hundreds of leading companies over the last few years. The paper recognizes that despite these commitments, the planet still continues to lose forest at an unprecedented rate – a year before the targeted goal of 2020 is to be achieved: What can be done to still achieve the target and what role can multi-stakeholder partnerships play in achieving this goal?
