CASH OpEd on the pernicious impacts of European regulation on smallholder commodity producers

The CASH Coalition is deeply concerned about the unintended consequences of new EU deforestation regulations on smallholder livelihoods in the Global South. The EUDR jeopardizes smallholders’ incomes and market share, and a precarious smallholder transition to regenerative agriculture.

Published by the Thomson Reuters Foundation, an OpEd authored by CASH members Debbie Aung Din (Proximity Designs), Willy Foote (Root Capital), and Phuc To (Forest Trends Association) highlights the stakes for smallholder farmers and advocates for corrective, inclusive actions that ensure our forests and the livelihoods of indigenous and local smallholder producers.
