Sustainable Development Goals and Fairtrade: The case for partnership

Published: 31 Oct 2015


The Sustainable Development Goals were adopted by the UN General Assembly in September 2015. The goals set the ambition of ending poverty “in all its forms, everywhere”, while leaving no-one behind. They represent a powerful opportunity to improve the lives of the 1.3 billion small scale farmers and agricultural workers upon whom the world depends to produce our food and protect our planet.

This report is intended as a tool for governments to understand the ways in which Fairtrade can support delivery of the SDGs; and by partner organizations, such as businesses who want to understand more about how they can work with the Fairtrade movement to generate real and lasting progress.
