Closing the gap
FPP and partners launch new report and web portal for rights-based approaches and community solutions to tackling deforestation and ensuring supply chain accountability
FPP's new portal aims to inform governments, businesses and others developing policies, standards and initiatives to reform global supply chains, by platforming case studies, publications and statements from communities across Africa, Asia, and South America on rights-based solutions to tackling deforestation.
Synthesising 4 years of research from FPP and partner case studies on forest peoples’ rights and tropical deforestation in Indonesia, Malaysia, Colombia, Peru, Paraguay, Guyana, Liberia, Cameroon and DRC, Closing the Gap identifies obstacles to reforms in supply chains driving forest loss and related rights violations, and evaluates multiple factors limiting the effectiveness of national and global forest and climate policies along with different zero deforestation (ZDF) policy approaches, to present proven, rights-based and local solutions.
