How can multi-stakeholder organisations seeking to promote the sustainable production of globally-traded mineral and agricultural commodities more effectively tackle large-scale problems of deforestation, land use conflict, or precarious smallholder farmer livelihoods?

Drawing on new empirical research in Ecuador, Indonesia and Peru, this Australian Research Council-funded project will address the above question by analysing and evaluating innovative multi-stakeholder, market-driven governance schemes that are intended to have broad sector, landscape or jurisdiction-wide impacts on critical social and environmental problems.
