The Tropical Forest Alliance 2020’s theory of change, developed by its founding members, envisions success through a series of multi-stakeholder initiatives. The first initiative launched by TFA 2020 was the Africa Palm Oil initiative, currently on-going, targeted at the development and implementation of regional principles for responsible palm oil development in West and Central Africa.
With the establishment of the full time TFA 2020 Secretariat in June 2015, TFA 2020 underwent a strategy development exercise to identify key focus areas for additional initiatives. The strategy development was conducted with support from partners such as the Global Canopy Programme and ProForest, as well as wider TFA2020 partner interviews, TFA 2020 Secretariat, and in close collaboration with the TFA2020 Steering Committee. This research fed into the strategic context for TFA 2020 portion of the TFA 2020 Annual Report 2015-16 available here.
It also, along with TFA 2020 partner consensus concluded that TFA 2020 would focus on 3 regional initiatives and 3 global initiatives to help reach its goals. The regional outlook ones – Africa Palm Oil initiative, Brazil initiative and Indonesia initiative – focusing on regional transformations through effective cross-sector partnerships. The other three initiatives concentrate on specific themes essential for transformation at the global level. More information one each is available in the below detailed pages.
