Since 2015, the NYDF Assessment Partners have conducted an annual assessment of global progress toward the ten goals of the NYDF and its 2020 and 2030 targets. In this series of slide decks, we synthesize our findings from seven years of research and analysis across each of these ten goals to provide a baseline to assess 2030 forest targets made at COP26 and across other international declarations and taret-setting initiatives. Taken together, these goal summaries provide a holistic overview of the state of play and key remaining challenges in protecting, restoring, and sustainably managing forests.

The slide decks are categorized according to the following four forest themes:
In this third installment, we present overviews for the three NYDF goals that fit into theme 2: Sustainable production and development. Goal 2 addresses efforts to end deforestation driven by agricultural commodity production - primarily through the lens of private sector action. Goal 3 brings attention to the risks and progress made in addressing deforestation and forest degradation derived from extractive industries and infrastructure development. Finally, Goal 4 turns attention to subsistence or small-scale commercial activities that may drive forest loss, such as shifting cultivation or fuel wood collection, and addressess progress on supporting alternative livelihood options.
