What are ‘landscape or jurisdictional initiatives’?
Companies, governments and NGOs are recognizing that implementing commitments to responsible sourcing and production in commodity agriculture is complex and that working with individual producers in individual supply chains is not always effective.
Landscape or jurisdictional initiatives are emerging as ways of achieving various objectives – including responsible production of agricultural and forest commodities – at a larger scale.
Support for these approaches is growing fast, but it is sometimes unclear what these initiatives are and how they can
transform commodity supply chains.
Our new briefing, the first in a forthcoming series, provides a clear introduction to this fast evolving area. It outlines the main elements of these initiatives and describes some of the approaches that are underway.
