Addressing Commodity Driven Deforestation: Findings from the GGP Terminal Evaluation in Indonesia, Liberia and Paraguay
The Good Growth Partnership (GGP) is a programme that promotes an integrated supply chain approach combining the factors of production, demand, and investment as integrated tracks seeking points of integration within the supply chain to enhance incentives and demand for sustainably produced agricultural commodities. This report explains the results and lessons learned from three GGP projects that are operating at landscape-scale in Indonesia, Liberia and Paraguay.
As part of the GGP, the programme ensures that all landscape-level stakeholders are consulted in regards to land-use planning and policy making as part of a multi-stakeholder process. This report describes some of the lessons learnt from these processes across the three countries. These lessons learned include that trust is a limiting factor, and must be planned for and adequately costed. A trust-building process must be built into the projects when planning for a project to ensure success. The report also describes how the participating projects utilised the High Conservation Value and High Carbon Stock framework into the landscape planning to assist the transition towards sustainable production.
The GGP is led by the United Nations Development Programme implemented in collaboration with UNEP, WWF, Conservation International and the International Finance Corporation. It GGP consisted of five Global Environment Facility funded “child” projects working across production, financing and demand in Brazil, Indonesia, Liberia, and Paraguay.
