Webinar: 13 March 2024, 2–3 pm CET
The Role of the Landscape Approach Focusing on Cocoa Supply Chains - Using the landscape approach to answer EUDR and upcoming regulations.

This webinar aims to highlight the efficacy of the landscape approach in bolstering companies' due diligence processes, particularly within the context of smallholder supply chains. The landscape approach offers a holistic strategy to identify and tackle prevalent social and environmental risks across many actors. It is thus a particularly important tool for mitigating risks and fostering sustainable commodity production practices. Case examples from coffee, cocoa, and palm oil supply chains will illustrate how a landscape approach can tackle systemic risks in smallholder-dominated supply chains.

How Companies, Indigenous Peoples, and Local Communities are Partnering to Advance Human Rights and Conserve Nature

Research has consistently shown that Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (IPLC) manage vast portions of our planet's land surface, harbouring 80% of global biodiversity. However, their land rights are often disregarded, leaving them vulnerable to external threats and inhibiting their ability to protect their territories from deforestation, biodiversity loss, and damage to culturally significant sites.

International corporate buyers, investors and producers play a pivotal role and need to do more to ensure that the companies they work with, purchase from, or invest in are respecting the land and resource rights of IPLCs. By doing so, they can advance their sustainability commitments and support preserving human rights enshrined in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) and the ILO 169 Convention.

In this webinar, through engaging presentations and real-life examples, we explored successful case studies highlighting how companies can respect their rights, combat deforestation, and safeguard biodiversity. Watch the recording as we delve into the transformative power of recognising and respecting Indigenous Peoples’ and Local Communities' (IPLC) land and resource rights.
