As a major global supplier of forest risk commodities, such as palm oil and paper & pulp, Southeast Asia is critical to demonstrating evidences of sustainable land use impact that combines forest protection and economic growth.

 

Increasing number of companies that produce or source agricultural or forest commodities in the region have committed to reduce deforestation from their supply chains and are moving towards implementation. In addition, Governments of Southeast Asian nations, local and provincial governments, NGOs, Indigenous Peoples organizations are focusing on how to reduce deforestation and forest fire in a manner that boost economic growth and people’s well-being.

 

The Southeast Asia Initiative aims to accelerate the above-mentioned transitions through:

 

  • Bolstering international sustainable investment in Southeast Asia’s economies
  • Supporting smallholder farmers and independent third-party suppliers
  • Championing a new narrative for deforestation-free growth
  • Support on peat restoration efforts in Indonesia

 

The Southeast Asia Initiative consist of a working group of multistakeholder regional and global partners, under the umbrella of TFA Southeast Asia.
