On June 2, 2022, CIPÓ Executive Director Adriana Erthal Abdenur gave a presentation on our “Responsibility Chains” initiative at Harvard University, in Cambridge, Massachusetts (USA). The talk was part of the VeriTalks series, held at the Harvard Science Center.
Background: There is no global treaty for forests. How do we cooperate internationally to protect forests and stop the widespread environmental destruction, human rights abuses and labor violations associated with the predatory use of forest resources? Plataforma CIPÓ and the Climate Governance Commission propose Responsibility Chains as a multi-stakeholder governance model for spreading accountability for cleaning up forest commodity chains.
