Description

Description TFA 2020 is a public-private partnership in which partners take voluntary actions, individually and in combination, to reduce the tropical deforestation associated with the sourcing of commodities such as palm oil, soy, beef, and paper and pulp. The Alliance does so by tackling the drivers of tropical deforestation using a range of market, policy, and communications approaches.
Objectives TFA 2020 will contribute to mobilizing and coordinating actions by governments, the private sector and civil society to reduce tropical deforestation related to key agricultural commodities by 2020.
Activities Improve planning and management related to tropical forest conservation, agricultural land use and land tenure.

-Share best practices for tropical forest and ecosystem conservation and commodity production, including working with smallholder farmers and other producers on sustainable agricultural intensification, promoting the use of degraded lands and reforestation. -Provide expertise and knowledge in order to assist with the development of commodity and processed-commodity markets that promote the conservation of tropical forests. - Improve monitoring of tropical deforestation and forest degradation to measure progress.
