Sustainable Development by Certified Trade with Indigenous Peoples

Project C1-7

The project is devoted to the question of how a voluntary certification system can contribute to fairer sustainable trade with indigenous peoples. The certification system shall adequately support indigenous peoples’ trading with their products in respect of their livelihood and traditional relationship to land and resources. At the core of the project lies a case study guided by selected groups of indigenous peoples and corporate partners who cooperatively develop trade channels that allow the project researchers to test the parameters of the certification system.
