Measured development: options to distinguish and measure the impacts of business models of forest and farm producers

This FFF working paper is directed towards the leaders of Forest and Farm Producer Organisations (FFPOs) particularly those involving national or international federations which have a mandate to serve their members.

Essentially it asks two questions: Do existing labelling schemes do an adequate job of distinguishing elements of FFPO businesses to confer market advantage? Do systems for measuring the contribution of businesses to sustainable development adequately reflect the contribution that FFPOs themselves feel they make?
