Rainforest Alliance New Agriculture Certification Standard Stakeholder Consultation

Unffocial GLF Side Event

In January 2018, the Rainforest Alliance merged with UTZ. We joined forces because we know that together we can have a greater impact and be a better partner to the many stakeholders we work with.

As part of the consultation process for the new Rainforest Alliance Sustainable Agriculture standard, we are delighted to solicit your input and invite you for our consultation workshop in Bonn, that runs in parallel with the Global Landscapes Forum.

Where: Global Nature Fund | Geschäftsstelle/Office Bonn 

Kaiser-Friedrich-Straße 11 | 53113 Bonn | GERMANY
Approx. 10 min walk from World Conference Center

When: Sunday morning, 2 December  2018, time: 09.00-11.00

Our new sustainable agriculture standard will be designed to maximize positive social, environmental, and economic impact, while offering farmers an enhanced framework to improve their livelihoods while protecting the landscapes where they live and work.

In our consultation workshop we will build on your expertise and reflect on our latest thinking around central environmental topics, including: no conversion of forests, agroforestry, conservation of native vegetation, climate change mitigation and adaptation.

How to sign up?

If you are interested in participating and providing input to the standard development, please sign-up through sending an email with your name, organization and contact details to: sebastiaan.vanderhoek@ra.org before 26 November 2018.

A more detailed agenda and preparatory reading will be circulated to the attendees closer to the date.
