Consumer behaviour and institutional structures maintain the current unsustainable patterns of global change, especially climate change and biodiversity loss.
Through this case study Radboud University will investigate the new legislations on deforestation-free supply chains focusing on soy and beef and how they relate to biodiversity policies.
They will also explore the barriers and opportunities for promoting alternative value chains (e.g. nontimber products incl. guarana, nuts and fruits or handicrafts) that have impacts on biodiversity conservation and local livelihoods in Europe and the Brazilian Amazon and Cerrado.
