The FRA is a multi-stakeholder association striving for the improvement of the working and living conditions of the primary producers in the natural rubber and latex sector by ap-plying the principles of Fair Trade. At the same time it supports environmentally friendly rubber produc-tion. This report aims to increase awareness within the rubber industry, the public sector and develop-ment communities regarding the ecological, social, and economic challenges in the rubber sector. It also offers insights into potential solutions to overcome these challenges.
