Series: FAO Commodities and Trade Technical Papers

This publication is a summary of the presentations and discussions that took place during the meeting on 'Voluntary Standards and Certification for Responsible Agricultural Production and Trade' organized by FAO in April 2004. It presents the situation of the main import markets for certified products and the evolution of demand. Case studies aimed at comparing sustainable farming methods with conventional methods are presented.

These comparisons focus on production cost, yield, price premium and net profit. The difficulties with which the producers are confronted are analysed and possible solutions to overcome them are explored. The publication also discusses the roles of nongovernmental organizations, private stakeholders and other institutions involved in sustainable agriculture and explores ossibilities for greater collaboration among them.
