World Resources Institute Invites You to
A Forest Data Partnership Webinar
"The Traceability and Transparency Tipping Point: Transforming Agricultural Supply Chains"
The rapidly evolving landscape may signal a tipping point for fuller traceability and transparency in supply chains for agricultural and forest commodities. They are both critical to monitoring where forest loss is happening and to support decision-making by supply chain actors.
A new WRI report, supported by the Forest Data Partnership, shows that despite the rapid progress seen to date in developing traceability and transparency solutions, key challenges and data gaps remain. It also examines what is needed to ensure that initiatives, tools, and policies like the European Union’s deforestation regulation, are set up for success.
Join us for a webinar on November 6 where we will unpack findings from the report, explore priority action areas for closing key gaps, and showcase collaborative approaches to advancing traceability and transparency.
