The current triple crisis has demonstrated that food security, health, livelihoods and forest conservation cannot be treated in isolation any longer. Sustainable agriculturerelies on healthy forest ecosystems, but the production of soft commodities is also the main driver for deforestation with climate and health consequences. Based on UN-REDD’s work with its partner countries, the three sessions will explore solutions for the transition from business-as-usual agriculture to deforestation-free, sustainable value chains in a building-back-better context, the fight against forest crime in the Lower Mekong region and the very latest findings on the state of the world’s forests (Global Forest Resources Assessment 2020 and State of the World’s Forests 2020).
