|Overview : |
United Nations Development Programme, UNDP, established the Green Commodities Programme,GCP, in 2009 in recognition of the importance of global agricultural commodities and the need to strengthen UNDP’s support and leadership in the field. GCP was initiated with seed funding from the UNDP and was tasked to evolve into a global programme supporting UNDP’s Strategic Plan, building on almost a decade of the Global Environment Facility, GEF´s supported projects mainstreaming ecosystem services into productive landscapes. GCP’s global targets, objectives and delivery strategies are based on inclusive and sustainable growth and development – combining governments and markets in agriculture through public private partnerships and democratic dialogue processes. GCP’s focus on strengthening the livelihoods of smallholder producers within commodity supply chains and reducing environmental footprints, particularly deforestation, through public private partnerships can be key for UNDP’s ambitions to reduce poverty, reduce deforestation and engage the private sector in Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs.
GCP is coordinating the Good Growth Partnership, GGP, Program, an integrated “supply chain” approach to tackling the underlying root causes of deforestation from agriculture commodities, specifically beef, oil palm, and soy, which together account for nearly 70% of deforestation globally. The GGP Program is delivered through a multi-agency consortium including World Wildlife Fund, WWF; International Finance Corporation, IFC; United Nations Environment Programme, UNEP, and Conservation International, CI. The Program provides support to production, generate responsible demand, support enabling transactions and foster adaptive management and learning through multiple child projects. UNDP GCP is implementing the production project within the GGP which includes global support and activities in three target countries (Paraguay, Liberia and Indonesia), as well as the Adaptive Management & Learning project (in partnership with WWF) focusing on programme level coordination, knowledge management, community of practice development, communication and partnerships.
The Good Growth Conference (GGC) builds on the annual gathering established in 2014 by the UNDP’s Green Commodities Community. Enabled by the Global Environment Facility, the GGC is convened in collaboration with WWF, IFC, UNEP, and CI. In 2021 the Good Growth Conference is planned to take place online between May 24th and May 28th and will be designed primarily around learning and trainings.
