Agenda 2030: How organic and fair trade can contribute to SDG implementation
In 2015 the international community adopted the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – an ambitious set of 17 overarching global goals to combat poverty and achieve sustainable development. A new milestone on the international development agenda is been achieved and needs to be put into practice in the coming fifteen years. Organic agriculture and Fair Trade has been proposed as an important means to achieve these goals. So how can organic agriculture and Fair Trade thus get higher on the policy agenda to achieve sustainable agricultural development and fair trading practices? Will the SDGs finally lead us on a path towards the transformation of agriculture and international trade to meet the current global challenges and which role does political and economic stakeholders play?
