Across the world, stakeholders at every level of the food supply chain are making commitments towards sustainability. These commitments are often geared towards reducing food waste or curbing detrimental environmental and social impacts. However, despite national and global commitments, it remains difficult, expensive and slow to ensure that agricultural products consistently meet the sustainability requirements that various stakeholders are setting forth.
The Giri Pragati project has been initiated by IDH The Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH) in partnership with Rythu Sadhikara Samstha (RySS) as a landscape or a geographic area-based approach in Andhra Pradesh, India. The program works across agriculture value chains to accelerate sustainable production, protect the environment and improve market linkages for uptake of surplus commodities with high commercial potential.
