NGO Statement calling on the Commission to propose an EU Action Plan
February 7, 2018

On February 7, NGOs sent an open letter to the EU Commission calling it on to commit to developing a formal action plan, including legislative measures, as soon as possible within the course of the coming months.

Failure to act would mean the EU will be unable to deliver on its international commitments to halt deforestation by 2020, to protect our climate and biodiversity, and to guarantee that human rights including the rights of indigenous peoples are respected.
