"The forest content of global supply chains: which policy mitigation options"
by Berthet, Etienne, Ilaria Fusacchia and Alessandro Antimiani

This study investigates the growing issue of deforestation caused by agricultural and food trade in Global Supply Chains (GSCs) using environmentally extended Multi-Regional Input Output (MRIO) data. The research focuses on the effectiveness of policy measures, such as tariffs based on forest content, in reducing deforestation while considering the uneven distribution of forest preservation costs across countries. A counterfactual analysis using the GTAP model is employed to assess alternative policy options and their impact on the Brazilian economy and land use. Results reveal that forming an International Forest Club Fund (IFCF) involving key trade partners, such as China and MENA countries, would help address the deforestation challenge while promoting economic growth in low- and middle-income countries. The IFCF would facilitate financial resources to enhance agricultural productivity in countries with significant forest resources, ensuring a win-win scenario.
