Project description

CCAFS examined the linkages between climate-smart agriculture and avoided deforestation, including Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation Plus (REDD+). The project focused on agricultural commodities as major drivers of deforestation and opportunites for low-carbon pathways to sustainable development.

As part of this project, CCAFS gave special attention to the governance and incentive arrangements affecting the supply chains of beef, palm oil and cereal crops, and the jurisdictions in which they are grown.  

The list below summarises the scope of this work.

Activities included:

Research reviews

SBSTA and COP Events
