Comparative insights

In our paper “Criteria for effective zero-deforestation commitments“, we build a comprehensive theoretical framework for understanding potential ZDC effectiveness (see above). Blue boxes show the criteria important for ZDC effectiveness. Green boxes indicate the scales at which effectiveness is expected. Grey boxes show types of potential spillovers.
In our research, we test these hypotheses and assess to which extent they are true in different supply chain contexts. In addition, we probe to what extent commitment implementation might harm producers’ equal access to markets, and what design choices might attenuate such decisions.
We will report on our findings as they arrive!
