Reframing the debate: Better Growth without deforestation initiative is about championing a new narrative for deforestation-free growth and increasing practical understanding of how private sector commitments and public policy goals can be aligned.

An economic consultancy has been retained to conduct an analysis on the economic and political benefits that zero-deforestation commitments deliver in producing countries, focusing on investment opportunities and rural development in in producing countries. The report has been launched in March 2016 at the TFA 2020 General Assembly in Jakarta, Indonesia and can be found below in the publications.

Beyond the publication of the report the initiative is working towards aligning similar initiative being designed by the NCE Commission.
