FGV Rio Law's Centre for Global Law has policy paper approved by the G20

The policy paper presented to the G20 by FGV Rio Law's Centre for Global Law (CPDG) has been approved and will be published in June of this year. The document, entitled "Challenge in the multilateral debate on international forest regulation: an analysis on the applicability and impact of the EUDR for the G20", analyzes the normative and operational challenges of the European Union deforestation-free regulation (EUDR) in order to formulate recommendations to facilitate its non-discriminatory application.

The CPDG's proposal, drawn up in partnership with the Centre for Global Governance Studies at the Catholic University of Leuven (KU Leuven) in Belgium, was submitted to the T20, a G20 think tank that brings together research centres and groups from member and guest countries. The aim is to receive different contributions in order to provide answers to global challenges. The G20 is the group responsible for bringing together the world's main economies and the initiative seeks to rethink public policies at an international level.

The document will be part of "Task Force 4 - Trade and investment for sustainable and inclusive growth", which is dedicated to analyzing how trade and investment mechanisms can contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) outlined in the United Nations 2030 Agenda. The results of the research could provide a basis for suggestions and alternatives to incorporate specific demands from countries that, like Brazil, will be most affected by the EUDR.

Coordinated by FGV Rio Law professor Paula Wojcikiewicz Almeida, the CPDG was created with the purpose of conducting research and studies on Global Law and Governance taking into consideration the context and the specific demands of the Global South. The Centre's research focuses on in the following areas: global regulation; global litigation; climate change and forest regulation; and human rights and democracy. The team analyzing forest regulation, made up of researchers Gabriel Ralile, Lucas Vollers, Jana Leal and Natália Barcelos, is developing a project in partnership with the Institute for Climate and Society (iCS) on the impacts of the EUDR.
