In September 2014, the New York Declaration on Forests (NYDF) outlined 10 goals that provide endorsers—including countries, subnational governments, companies, indigenous groups, and NGOs— with ambitious global targets to protect forests and end natural forest loss by 2030. This report focuses on Goal 2: eliminating deforestation from agricultural commodity supply chains. It draws on data from Supply Change and many other sources to provide a coherent picture of the “state of play” of efforts to ensure that agrocommodity supply chains are free of deforestation.
