World Forestry Congress Side Event
Coex Center, Seoul (Hall E7) and virtual
The production and global trade of agricultural commodities, such as palm oil, soy, beef, cocoa, and coffee, drives deforestation and forest degradation. To address this challenge, all public and private supply chain actors in producing and consuming countries need to collaborate to shift mainstream commodity markets towards sustainability.
On 2 May 2022, as part of the XV World Forestry Congress, the EU REDD Facility and RECOFTC will co-host a hybrid side-event.
The side-event will show how improved accessibility and transparency of information along complex commodity supply chains can help improve governance, build trust among trade partners, and support accountability. It will explore how to achieve this while ensuring that smallholders, local communities, and indigenous peoples can benefit from international trade.

The event will be moderated by Satrio A. Wicaksono, Forest and Land-Use Governance Expert, European Forest Institute.
