Explanations and views from partners
Since November 2021, policy makers from across the EU have been negotiating a common position on how it should tackle deforestation caused by imports of key forest-risk commodities such as palm oil, beef, soy, cocoa, coffee and timber.
On 5 December, they agreed on a final proposal for their Regulation on deforestation-free products.
On 13 December, we hosted a webinar to discuss Frequently Asked Questions such as: Which commodities does the final law cover? How will it impact Indigenous Peoples and smallholders? How are stakeholders reacting to it in producer countries?
