Catalyzing private sector commitment to implement the Bonn Challenge – a platform for success
As of: January 2019
Objective and activities
The overall goal of this project is to share, communicate, and technically support companies in implementing the Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) approach in their supply chains, thereby catalysing private sector investment to support the Bonn Challenge (BC). IUCN will apply the Restoration Opportunity Assessment Methodology in three supply chains in Peru, Tanzania and Ghana. Results will be used to develop business cases demonstrating the economic, social, and environmental benefits from FLR and identify ways, costs and benefits of integrating FLR in specific commodity supply chains and how it relates to Zero Net Deforestation (ZND). IUCN will also establish a Community of Practice on FLR in supply chains, based on the business cases and other learning experiences, with key private sector actors, to support companies with their FLR and ZND initiatives in support of the BC. Learning will be compiled into a Guide for Business to inform business initiatives and policy platforms.
