Localising the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through Fair Trade – Toolkit

United Nations Environment Programme (2016)

Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers – especially in the South. Fair Trade Organisations, backed by consumers, are engaged actively in supporting producers, awareness raising and in campaigning for changes in the rules and practice of conventional international trade. Through this toolkit, the Fair Trade movement aims to provide Local Authorities with recommendations on how they can contribute to this ambition by partnering up with the Fair Trade movement. This publication is structured around the following key local policy areas: public procurement, local economic development, international cooperation, awareness raising, and multi-stakeholder engagement.
