A guide to working with agribusiness supply chains towards conserving biodiversity

This publication examines the impacts of agricultural supply chain activities on biodiversity and ecosystems and provides recommendations for the conservation policies that are needed to preserve this vital resource. It is intended to provide government policy-makers with guidelines for developing strategies for involving agricultural supply chains in the drive for biodiversity protection and the implementation of sustainable development.
