OBJETIVO(S)

This project will contribute to the development of beatter market strategies institutional arrangements enabling southern communities, entrepreneurs and organisations to exploit the opportunities and overcome the obstacles in market-led developments they encounter as they build integrated strategies for the conservation and sustainable use of biological resources.

RESUMEN

The conservation of agro-biodiversity needs to go hand-in-hand with the generation and strengthening of viable livelihood opportunities for local communities and rural entrepreneurs. Identifying and extending the economic value of biological resources creates incentives to protect and conserve biological diversity. Thus, many entrepreneurs, community organisations and development practitioners rightly focus their attention on connecting local biodiversity conservation initiatives to international and domestic markets, which typically offer better economic opportunities for local people. The project focuses on how social organisations and entrepreneurs engaged with concrete biodiversity conservation are enabled or constrained by the dynamics of markets and chains, in particular quality standards, certification procedures, and audit schemes. The project links two distinct features of an integrated strategy for conserving agro- biodiversity. On one hand, it builds on locally embedded business models, rural livelihood strategies and productive practices that sustain the diversity of the natural resource base in a specific territorial domain. On the other hand, it recognises that the viability of such endeavours increasingly depends on creating linkages with market development and chain integration, in particular through standard-setting and certification. The project focuses on the interfaces where these two sometimes opposed tendencies of robust agro-biodiversity conservation strategies come together. The project will explore the opportunities and address the obstacles that arise within the design and implementation of strategies intended to integrate local biodiversity conservation with market development. It will focus specifically on the design of robust, viable institutional frameworks that will enable Southern producers of natural products to connect with global value chains and markets, while simultaneously promoting the conservation of biodiversity. Connecting locally embedded conservation strategies with global markets and quality competition generally exposes them to the kinds of procedures and standards that are typically imposed by vertically coordinated value chains. Such norms may represent a barrier to entry for small-scale Southern producers or rural entrepreneurs and may also undermine efforts to preserve distinctive local products and biodiversity. Key problems include the failure to realise the potential market value of distinctive local products or the conservation practices involved in their production; non-recognition of local conservation expertise and technological innovation when standards are being set; and the potential for existing market-based governance systems and regulatory regimes, which usually focus on individual farms or enterprises, to weaken or undermine collective local endeavours to conserve natural resources.
