Catalyzing Markets to Deliver Conservation

This Landscape Talk will focus on lessons learned in the palm oil sector for how to increase the efficacy of financial deterrents and incentives to reduce the drivers of deforestation. As commitments to sustainability increase from the corporate sector, there remains a stark difference between rhetoric and reality. Michal has worked directly with the financial sector and with supply chain actors to develop equitable conservation mechanisms that can be scaled to other sectors. Michal will draw on recent experience developing solutions for the palm oil sector in Southeast Asia, highlighting 2-3 specific takeaways that can be applied to similar efforts and contexts.
