Forests, Food Systems and Livelihoods: Trends, Forecasts and Solutions to Reframe Approaches to Protecting Forests

AlphaBeta is proud to have supported the Tropical Forest Alliance in the development of this report, which further underscores the reality that commodity-production-driven deforestation sits at the heart of sustainability challenges facing global food systems.

The analysis tracks the relationship between the rising demand for food and agricultural products and deforestation, and paints a picture of increasing demands on tropical forest landscapes. It explores how commodity-driven deforestation occurs under conditions of competing pressures from food security, rural development, global trade and environmental protection.

Preserving tropical forests is possible, and it can happen if stakeholders working to tackle the issue deploy systemic solutions that take into account these competing pressures of growing agricultural demand, sustaining livelihoods and ensuring economic development.
