This session will confront big ideas for shifting commodity production to more sustainable and safer alternatives. Two experts will draw lessons from examples of UNEP’s recent work in Cote d’Ivoire and Indonesia, as well as recent analysis of the economics of sustainable coffee cultivation in Vietnam and sustainable beef production in Costa Rica. They will discuss a theoretical roadmap for transition to sustainable commodity production: what is ‘sustainable commodity production’, what are the primary needs, what are the barriers and how can they be overcome.
