To incentivize zero-deforestation commodity production in tropical forest countries, it is important to ensure that the key factors influencing commodity value chain dynamics align with reducing deforestation. This paper provides recommendations to achieve zero-deforestation commodity production in Africa (the Democratic Republic of Congo [DRC] and Liberia) and Latin America (Colombia and Peru), focusing on the palm oil and beef and dairy sectors. A common assessment framework was developed to determine and compare key barriers to achieving this objective for each country and commodity. A set of interventions to overcome the key barriers is proposed, building on three background papers and ongoing work by other organizations, and followed by a set of recommended investments that the United States Government (USG) and its partners should make to promote zero-deforestation commodity production in the studied geographies and products.
