The Forests Dialogue (TFD), a Yale-based program that promotes multi-stakeholder discussions on forest issues, recently brought together 60 people from 15 countries to discuss how the concept of deforestation-free supply chains could be applied in western and central Africa.

Participants in the five-day event, held in Gabon in mid-October, included organizations working on natural resources, rights and sustainable development, international companies, representatives of ministries from several countries, sustainable land-use experts, and national NGOs. The dialogue followed the Africa Palm Oil Initiative Regional Meeting convened by the Tropical Forest Alliance 2020 in Libreville.
