Covenant Plant-Based Proteins 

Globally boosting sustainable production & consumption of plant protein

The production of high-quality plant proteins has overall much less impact on natural resources and the environment than production of animal proteins and contributes to public health. The urgency to act now is more relevant than ever. The ultimate challenge is to make sustainably produced high-quality plantbased proteins more readily available and more attractive for human consumption worldwide. We are inviting partners who want to work on these solutions in a coalition of experts, solution providers, supporters and market players.

How the covenant signatories want to address this issue:

- By fostering collaboration with national & global initiatives and actors which have similar ambitions

- By setting up and supporting projects & activities with (new) partners and doing it ‘first time right’

- By promoting a favourable international policy climate

- By strengthening local sustainabl

How the European Union joins trade dynamism with sustainable development

Embedding a multilateral approach is pivotal to the EU’s ethos on trade and sustainable development

See interesting blog, link: http://www.tradeforum.org/news/How-the-European-Union-joins-trade-dynamism-with-sustainable-development/

Extract: The European Union (EU) is at the vanguard of marrying the values of sustainable development with the economic engine of trade. Through the incorporation of comprehensive commitments on environmental and labour provisions in all its bilateral trade agreements the EU aims to build free and fair trading relationships. This is a reflection of EU determination to strengthen and uphold the international community’s journey that began with the Millennium Development Goals and the 2012 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio +20) and has culminated with the United Nations 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Read now: Commercial and Inclusive Value Chains: Doing Good and Doing Well

KIT, CTA and Practical Action Publisher are proud to announce that we have launched a new book: ‘Commercial and Inclusive Value Chains: Doing Good and Doing Well’ edited by Malcolm Harper, John Belt and Rajeev Roy.

The aim of this book is to show that disadvantaged small-holders and other poor people can be included in modern integrated value chains. These chains are profitable for them, for the value chain leaders, and for all the other processors and traders involved.

This guide is essential reading for managers and consultants who work in value chain development, staff of NGOs and donor agencies, and researchers and post-graduate students in business schools and in departments of economics and development studies. It includes cases studies on f
