There Is No Climate Justice Without Fair Trade
Fair Trade organizations urge inclusion of smallholder farmers and workers in climate solutions as global focus on climate crisis intensifies ahead of COP26.
- Urging governments to impose transparency and accountability measures for private sector supply chains while working to ensure sustainable livelihoods for smallholder agricultural and non-agricultural producers and workers;
- Demanding facilitated access to climate finance that empowers smallholder farmers, producers, artisans, and workers to adapt and become more resilient to climate change while shifting to net zero production on-farm;
- Calling on the private sector to pay “fair value, fair prices, and adhere to fair trading practices to ensure producers have the resources to make the investment needed for climate adaptation and mitigation”;
- and Lobbying for binding legal framework conditions that embed the highest environmental standards into a new, sustainable global trade policy.
