    GEF Secretariat

In 2014 the Global Environment Facility launched an ambitious effort to influence a shift in supply chains for beef, soy, and palm oil towards reduced-deforestation production, while delivering continued social and economic development to farmers and their communities. The GEF-6 program, Taking Deforestation out of Commodity Supply Chains, evolved into the Good Growth Partnership (GGP) program, which draws on a range of skills and experience from a consortium of GEF agencies and a diverse set of partners to catalyze and integrate wider action along the entire supply chain for these three commodities.
With ten years of experience, now is the time to reflect on the integrated supply chain approach used - what worked, what can be improved, and what lessons can be derived from implementation of the GGP program. The GEF, in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme and the Center for International Forestry Research and World Agroforestry, convened all relevant stakeholders in the program as well as independent academic institutions and other experts from the private sector, non-governmental organizations, and inter-governmental organizations to discuss the outcomes of the GGP. This report provides a summary of their findings.
