The Green Commodities Programme (GCP) exists to improve the national economic, social and environmental performance of agricultural commodity sectors. GCP works within agricultural commodity production in countries of UNDP operation where the programme can have significant impact on rural livelihoods, mitigate climate change, and maintain the ecosystem services and resilience of landscapes and seascapes.

The GCP has pioneered the concept of National Commodity Platforms to help governments facilitate shared visions and actions for sustainable commodity production among key stakeholders. GCP operates in over 10 countries globally.

GCP is now coordinating the GEF Integrated Approach Pilot (IAP) program, Taking Deforestation out of Commodity Supply Chains, an integrated supply chain approach to tackling the underlying root causes of deforestation from agriculture commodities, specifically beef, oil palm, and soy, which together account for nearly 70% of deforestation globally. The IAP Program will be delivered through a multi-agency consortium including WWF, IFC, UNEP, and CI. The Program will provide support to production, generate responsible demand, support enabling transactions and foster adaptive management and learning through multiple child projects.
