Innovative markets for sustainable agriculture: How innovations in market institutions encourage sustainable agriculture in developing countries
Through a competitive selection process, 15 cases from around the world provide insights into how small-scale initiatives that use sustainable production practices are supported by market demand, and create innovations in the institutions that govern sustainable practices and market exchanges. These cases respond to both local and distant consumers’ concerns about the quality of the food that they eat.
Sustainable Procurement is a process whereby organisations meet their needs for goods, services,
works and utilities in a way that achieves value for money on a whole life basis in terms of
generating benefits not only to the organisation, but also to society and the economy, whilst
minimising damage to the environment (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, UK,
2006). Sustainable Procurement should consider the environmental, social and economic
consequences of: Design; non-renewable material use; manufacture and production methods;
logistics; service delivery; use; operation; maintenance; reuse; recycling options; disposal; and
suppliers' capabilities to address these consequences throughout the supply chain (Department for
Environment, Food and Rural Affairs UK, 2006).

2) Bring the recommendations to policymakers to support ESC through formal education and encourage further development of current initiatives in non formal education; conduct more ESC public campaign; regulate sustainable production within business community, ethical marketing, and eco label; and to mainstreaming and integrate ESC into the existing curricula in formal education, and encourage further the efforts of ESC within non formal education.
3) Increase the understanding and knowledge of ESC as conceptual framework to educators and guide the educators in the following elements: integrate ESC into the existing formal education curricula with mixed approaches, develop further various ESC initiatives in non formal education, and reach more audience and strategic agent of change, while adjusted ESC material to specific local condition (to indicate challenges and opportunities) and the profile of the target group; and take the benefits of using social media as dissemination tools of ESC.
