The session will feature presentations of the key findings of the recently published Global Forest Resources Assessment 2020 (FRA) and the State of the World’s Forest (2020), followed by a panel discussion. The panel reflections will focus on the implication of these new insights for the focus and prioritization of actions by countries and their development partners to transform food systems to halt deforestation. The session will showcase existing solutions and how they may be scaled up and complemented to achieve the necessary systemic change.
