Session for experts and interested stakeholders about the upcoming requirements of the EU Regulation for deforestation free products, and what it has and misses to create genuine impact on the ground.
No tool can create impact alone, we've learnt, we need combinations of sticks and carrots. The EU law enters the room with a strong "stick" approach. How can it be fit for purpose and how can the family of complementary measures and tools join in to create genuine conservation and social impact in soy (risk)landscapes together? The Trilogue between the European Commission, European Council and Parliament is happening right now. What can be expected?
After this ADP-ENSI-CSI expert meeting, a second one will follow soon after the Regulation's text is out. Implementation for soy, how? Be there with us!

Dialogue with input from Amsterdam Declaration Partnership, ENSI, research, industry and NGOs.
