Global trade flows lend complexity to these questions, as commodities may be exported, processed into other goods and re-exported repeatedly, before their final consumption. Trase, supported by Germany's agency for international cooperation (GIZ) through funding from the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), presented new findings and analysis, which explore different aspects of Germany’s exposure to deforestation risk in unprecedented breadth and detail.

With guest speakers:

  • Lisa Kirfel-Rühle, Deputy Head of Unit, Sustainable Agricultural Value Chains, BMZ
  • Katja Albrecht, Initiative for Sustainable Agricultural Supply Chains (INA), GIZ
