As agricultural commodity production increasingly threatens important forest eco-systems, many commitments have been made by governments and companies. But progress in achieving the goals set out in these commitments has been slow and uneven. Starting in the Amazon eco-region, through the Commitment to Action initiative, participating countries will bring together the public and private sectors, with civil society. The goal is to define a national roadmap. This highlights initiatives underway and further actions needed to fulfill their commitments. Roadmaps will be presented at the UNFCCC COP-24, providing a platform for a wide range of partner organizations to showcase their work in the Amazon supporting deforestation-free commodities.
