Better Management Practices & Agribusiness Commodities: Commodity Guides
This report was written for the International Finance Corporation (part of the World Bank Group) and WWF, as part of a project that is exploring how useful the development and application of ‘Better Management Practices’ (BMPs) would be for a range of agribusiness commodities. It is intended as a basis for discussion regarding future work on BMPs and agribusiness commodities. For each of four selected commodities (cotton, palm oil, soy and sugar), it sets out background information on the sector; key environmental and social impacts; prospects for tackling these impacts through the adoption of BMPs; and preconditions, risks and strategic choices in relation to developing a BMP approach. The four commodity-specific chapters are preceded by a summary of common themes and potential approaches that emerge.
