Beyond Certification

Our Case Studies

More than 13 detailed case studies of transnational market-based sustainability governance initiatives are being conducted: four in Peru, four in Ecuador and at least five in Indonesia—all countries in which sustainability governance initiatives have proliferated in recent years in response to the critical role of these countries and sectors in global efforts to counter commodity-linked deforestation. In each country, we examine cases in a mix of commodity sectors, encompassing coffee, cocoa, palm oil and small-scale/artisanal gold mining.
