The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) supported an assessment of crop development, forest loss, and landscape carbon stocks in Southeast Asia, led by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service (USFS), Spatial Informatics Group (SIG), and World Agroforestry (ICRAF). The recently released report explores tradeoffs between agricultural production and forest conservation, offering data-driven recommendations to promote low-emission development strategies.
USAID Green Invest Asia and USFS are convening a webinar on this report, “Commodity-Driven Forest Loss: A Study of Southeast Asia”. The event targets business and investors seeking to align their sustainability plans with environmental analysis, and will feature a panel discussion on regional recommendations to promote sustainable economic development and carbon storage in landscapes.
