GCP is now coordinating the GEF Integrated Approach Pilot (IAP) program, Taking Deforestation out of Commodity Supply Chains, an integrated “supply chain” approach to tackling the underlying root causes of deforestation from agriculture commodities, specifically beef, oil palm, and soy, which together account for nearly 70% of deforestation globally. The IAP Program will be delivered through a multi-agency consortium including WWF, IFC, UNEP, and CI and UNDP working across Brazil, Indonesia, Liberia and Paraguay. The program will involve a number of ‘child’ projects focused on sustainable production, responsible demand, enabling transactions and adaptive management and learning. UNDP GCP is the lead agency on the program and is also implementing the production project and the adaptive management and learning program is set to be launched on September 8, 2017 at a high-profile event in New York, hosted by the GEF CEO and the UNDP and featuring high level participation from the countries involved.. This event provides an important opportunity to help partners visualize the implementation of the program over the next four years and to galvanize around it to maximize its impact.
