The EU observatory's role in tackling global deforestation and human rights violations: What we can learn from Brazil
On 17 November, after decades of trusting companies to tackle the problem voluntarily, the European Commission proposed a Regulation on deforestation-free products which aims to restrict products linked to deforestation from entering the EU.

As part of its fight against deforestation, the EU also intends to create a Forest Observatory that will focus “on deforestation, forest degradation, changes in the world’s forest cover, and associated drivers. The objective is to facilitate access to information on supply chains for public entities, consumers and businesses."

The proposed Regulation is a watershed moment in the battle to end Europe’s major role in destroying the world’s forests, but will it and the EU Observatory be strong enough to protect forests and the rights of people living in them?

That is what the webinar will consider.

Starting with the Commission presenting the Regulation, the webinar will also discuss forest and human rights monitoring systems in Brazil to understand whether or how these could inform ongoing EU initiatives.
