Assistant professor Rachael Garrett has been awarded $400,000 from the National Science Foundation to study connections between deforestation and global supply chains.

“This project will provide new knowledge on the complex global telecouplings and public-private governance interactions of how zero-deforestation commitments influence land cover change,” Garrett and her colleagues propose. “The research will enhance our fundamental understanding about the conditions under which zero-deforestation commitments lead to ecosystem conservation.”
