Summary

Working simultaneously on production, demand, and finance, in Brazil, Paraguay, Indonesia and Liberia, the Good Growth Partnership (GGP) enables sustainable development in three global commodity supply chains: soy, beef, and palm oil. This Impact Brief covers the work of GGP in developing land use policies to reduce deforestation in Indonesia, Liberia, and Paraguay. On the production side besides ensuring enabling sustainable production policies, land use change planning and monitoring are important to ensure that High Conservation Value (HCV) and High Carbon Stock (HCS) areas1 are protected from agricultural expansion. Over five years, the GGP has supported an improved enabling environment for sustainable land use by developing or improving 19 policies, 8 of which are in-force. As a result, an estimated 129 million tons of CO2e emissions have been avoided through the protection of over 847,000 hectares.
