Summary

The Good Growth Partnership (GGP), a flagship initiative of the Global Environment Facility (GEF), convened leaders from several major, global agricultural commodity producers and buyers - as well as NGO representatives - to discuss how best to accelerate systemic change in agricultural commodity production. This report documents learnings from a roundtable event about how future donor funding and private sector action on sustainable sourcing can be best aligned - especially in relation to the on-going work of the GEF funded Good Growth Partnership and the GEF's up-coming Food Systems, Land Use and Restoration (FOLUR) Impact Program. This report summarises the input from participants on (1) Key challenges for the private sector in achieving zero deforestation in their supply chains, as well as addressing their other key social and environmental sourcing issues and (2) Recommendations for how the GEF, the GGP partner organisations and major private sector companies can increase the effectiveness of their work through better collaboration.
