The workshop will bring together four leading, independent experts in the field of deforestation from two renowned institutions (Environment Agency Austria and Cambridge Econometrics), in order to inform the ENVI Committee Members of the most important concerns in this area and to provide a forum for discussion.

With the aim of collecting independent research contributions for the legislative own initiative report on "An EU legal framework to halt and reverse EU-driven global deforestation", the workshop will cover the scale of EU-driven global deforestation, the supply chain of products and raw materials originating from deforested areas as well as an assessment of the current policies aiming at addressing global deforestation and the prospects for a future EU regulatory framework.
