How to identify human rights risks in production landscapes
01 Apr 22
This week: José Luis López, palm oil and biodiversity programme manager at Solidaridad, and Mario Rafael Rodriguez, senior associate for LandScale at the Rainforest Alliance talk about a collaboration project in the Ocosito landscape in Guatemala using the LandScale framework. In particular, they discuss how LandScale – a new system for measuring sustainability at a landscape level, led by Rainforest Alliance, Verra and Conservation International – has helped to identify human rights and labour risks.
Plus: new research shows that forests, and especially tropical forests, have an even greater role in tempering climate change than previously thought; Nasdaq’s new reference indices tracking carbon price; Ukraine war forces Iceland U-turn on palm oil use in its own products; and UN World Food Programme facing $9bn shortfall, in the news digest.
And, Innovation Forum’s Emily Heslop gives an update on the Future of Food conference coming up in Minneapolis on 14th-15th June.
