DELIVERABLE 5.2 Report from Stakeholder workshop 2

June 2024

Francesca Verones, Marion Lebrun, Koen Kuipers, Yeqing Zhang

The aim of this second stakeholder workshop was to update and inform the stakeholders about the progress and to discuss and develop strategies for the way forward. Preliminary results of models, pathways, and targets, as well as societal and governance aspects linked to these pathways would be presented and discussed, to ensure that expectations of stakeholders can be met and adapted to. The set-up for the workshop was hybrid. Only one stakeholder was present physically, the other participated online (see participant list). We structured the workshop into 5 distinct sessions, with an input presentation each, followed by a discussion in each session. Minutes were taken in all sessions. [...]

DELIVERABLE 3.1 Effective and socially desirable policy-technology mixes with transformative potential for biodiversity conservation

May 2024

Daniel Braun, Jan Börner

The purpose of this scientific report is to provide stakeholders and policy actors with scientific evidence about policies, policy mixes and their interrelations with technologies to enable transformative change for biodiversity conservation. We focus our analyses and discussions on biodiversity conservation policies of the European Union (EU), using the recent European Regulation on Deforestation-free Products (EUDR) as a case study.

DELIVERABLE 2.1 Initial toolbox design including the selection and implementation of environmental and socio-economic SDG indicators

May 2024

Koen Kuipers, Larissa Nowak, Thomas Kastner, Felicity Addo, Martin Dorber, Edgar Hertwich, Mark Huijbregts, Marta Kozicka, David Leclère, Sibylle Rouet-Pollakis, Kajwan Rasul, Isabel Richter, Konstantin Stadler, Yeqing Zhang, Hanzhong Zheng, Christos Zoumides, Evridiki Panayi, Florentios Economou, Francesca Verones

RAINFOREST aims to explore pathways for transformative change to reduce biodiversity impacts of major food and biomass value chains. This includes the development of broad-scale pathways (Work Package 1), but also case-studies of interventions that may achieve transformative change such as improving fishmeal production technologies (WP3), changing food consumption patterns (WP3), considering environmental footprints in investment portfolio decisions (WP4), and consuming novel foods (WP5).

DELIVERABLE 1.1 Report on co-produced transformative change pathways for biodiversity

January 2024

D. Leclère, C. Wong, L. Nowak, T. Kastner, D. Braun, K. Kuipers, T. Schinko, J. Boerner, M. Kozicka, I. Richter

Transformative change has emerged as a central concept framing the action needed to achieve sustainable futures and is increasingly targeted by multilateral agreements for climate and biodiversity. There is however limited knowledge about what might be feasible targets and pathways for transformative change in EU food and biomass supply chains, and how this could vary according to alternative worldviews. [...]

DELIVERABLE 5.1 Report from Stakeholder workshop

June 2023

F. Verones, E. Hertwich, D. Leclère, C. Wong, K. Kuipers, L. Nowak, T. Kastner, D.Braun, J. Börner

Stakeholder engagement is key to the success of the RAINFOEST project as it seeks to co-produce effective and just pathways to meet EU and global biodiversity targets through the transformation of the food and biomass sector. To this end, a stakeholder reference group was created with representatives from government institutions, academia, civil society, and industry. [...]
