In-depth discussion 2: Aligning expectations on data to deliver on regulatory and voluntary requirements: monitoring forest-risk supply chains

Demand-side due diligence regulations and commitments from commodity producers, traders, and buyers and financial institutions require data and monitoring systems that bring confidence to all actors along the supply chain.

Yet expectations about what data and monitoring systems are needed, reasonable and available – in order to deliver on regulatory requirements and individual commitments – often vary significantly between different groups of supply chain actors, resulting in significant confusion and misunderstanding, hampering efforts to develop common ground on minimum requirements.

This session will draw on discussions in the previous sessions and dig deeper into questions on expectations around the data and monitoring systems that are needed to achieve compliance with forthcoming regulations as well as voluntary standards and deliver sustainable systems of supply chain governance.
