The project is conducted within the framework of the New York Declaration of 2014 and the Amsterdam Declaration of 2015. The two declarations are intended to contribute to the fight against deforestation by enforcing restrictions on the international trade of major commodities that contribute to deforestation. The main commodities are: oil palm, rubber, timber, cocoa, soya and beef. There is a particular emphasis on commodities produced by tropical countries in the Global South.
The project aims to allow the Scientific and Technical Committee on Forests established by the French government, to propose politically, technically and financially acceptable definitions. These will apply to all French and European actors, as well as the producing countries of the South. They will guarantee the credibility of the French National Strategy against Imported Deforestation with regard to existing knowledge.
The work consists mainly of a literature review, consultation of key stakeholders, both in the Global North and the Global South, and workshops. The implementing partners are IDDRI and CIRAD.
