Sustainable Sector Transformation Model 2014

In assignment of IFC, Aidenvironment, New Foresight and IIED have developed a sustainable sector transformation model. In phase I (2013), we have analyzed the role of Voluntary Sustainability Standards (VSS) in transforming some of the main commodity sectors. In phase II (2014) we developed a more holistic approach to sector transformation applicable in sectors dominated by unorganized smallholders. This included detailed case studies in the cocoa sector in Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire, cotton sector in Mali, coffee sector in Vietnam, and palm oil sector in Indonesia.
