Proposed EU regulation on deforestation and forest degradation

Our case study on EU soy and beef imports from South America shows that this narrow focus on protecting FAO “forests” could increase pressure on other precious ecosystems. As proposed, the legislation would leave three quarters of the Cerrado (79 million hectares) and a third of the Gran Chaco (32 million hectares) unprotected.

Opinion by Benoît Biteau & Martin Häusling & Sarah Wiener
Ukraine’s food shortages require urgent humanitarian action. Efforts to derail the EU’s ambition on sustainable food will reduce yields and make us more vulnerable in the future.
