Benefits and Barriers to adopting good practices - For promoting biodiversity-friendly production in small and medium enterprises (SMEs)

12/2021 | Study

The vital role of the private sector in promoting biodiversity-friendly practices has been recognised and explored by the ‘Private Business Action for Biodiversity’ (PBAB) project. The project has tested different mechanisms for improving biodiversity protection across supply chains involving small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in India (spices), in Brazil (acai berries, carnauba wax), and in Mexico (agave). TRAFFIC has been analysed impacts and lessons learned of selected instruments for promoting biodiversity-friendly production in SMEs from the experiences of the PBAB project.
