Stepping up Swedish action on tropical deforestation

Research profile seminar

On the International Day of Forests we would like to invite you to identify entry points for Swedish actors who want to help reduce tropical deforestation. The event is organized by Focali, SIANI and GMV and is part of a dialogue series on global tropical deforestation initiated by Focali and several partners in December 2018 with the first event ¿Dialogue meeting on the future of the Brazilian Amazon¿.

Stopping tropical deforestation is global challenge. While global commitments have the ambition to halve, or even halt deforestation within just a few years, the latest numbers show an increasing trend in forest loss. At the same time, there is a growing international discussion on how both public and private actors can step up the fight against tropical deforestation.

On the International Day of Forests we would like to invite you to identify entry points for Swedish actors who want to help reduce tropical deforestation. Recent research have highlighted how Sweden contributes to the pressure on the world¿s remaining tropical forests, for instance through imports of agricultural commodities, such as palm oil, beef and soybeans, and financial investments in companies linked to forest clearing. Through a constructive dialogue between representatives from government, the private sector, civil society and academia, we hope that we jointly can identify and formulate concrete steps that different Swedish actors can take to reduce global tropical deforestation and find ways for continued collaboration on this shared challenge.
