Assistant professors Christoph Nolte and Rachael Garrett have co-authored “The role of supply-chain initiatives in reducing deforestation” in Nature Climate Change. “We review current supply-chain initiatives, their effectiveness, and the challenges they face, and go on to identify knowledge gaps for complementary public–private policies,” they write. “We find zero-deforestation policies by companies may be insufficient to achieve broader impact on their own due to leakage, lack of transparency and traceability, selective adoption and smallholder marginalization. Public-private policy mixes are needed to increase the effectiveness of supply-chain initiatives that aim to reduce deforestation.”
