About GLF Value Chains Week
The first-ever GLF Value Chains Week showcases efforts by financiers, project developers, and changemakers to build sustainable and equitable value chains for the health of people and the planet.
Global supply chain systems are complex. Many underlying drivers related to policy, financing, and market demand pose significant challenges for companies and financial institutions seeking to improve sustainability in their value chains. How can they make changes while improving livelihoods and protecting crucial ecosystems?
Unpacking a new concept
In this plenary from GLF Climate 2022, CIFOR–ICRAF Director General Ravi Prabhu introduces the concept of the stewardship economy, how it can transform our relationship with nature, and why we need to start building one as soon as possible.
“We need to start seeing land and nature as a community to which we belong rather than commodities to exploit. This is stewardship in simple terms.”
