FACT Dialogue: Turning the tide on commodity-driven deforestation

The FACT Dialogue provides a global forum for informal discussions between governments and other stakeholders from producer and consumer countries involved in the trade of commodities linked to deforestation in tropical forests. It aims to contribute towards putting an end to deforestation by encouraging open dialogue, facilitating the sharing of learning and recommendations, and providing members with tools and insights to ensure efforts are coordinated, avoid duplication and benefit people and nature.

P4F has provided financial and technical support to the FACT Secretariat and assisted the government of Ghana to form a strategy for its commitments on agriculture, forest and land-use under the FACT Roadmap.

This case study explores the purpose and structure of the FACT Dialogue as well as its key achievements to date.
