Agriculture and deforestation: the role of the EU to reduce the impact of agricultural activities on global forests

2023 - 2023

The project analyzes the direct and indirect impact of European demand for agricultural products on global deforestation, and proposes policy, technical and social solutions to reduce or minimize it. The research considers in particular recent European policy developments following both the launch of the Green Deal and the debate around new European legislation related to the import of deforestation-causing products and forest management (the EUDR above all). It focuses on case studies in Brazil and Indonesia and on some commodities-coffee in particular. It will be finalized in a report which will discuss both the problem and possible policy, social and technological solutions.
