Promoting A Sustainable Agriculture & Food Sector

The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity for Agriculture and Food (TEEBAgriFood) initiative brings together scientists, economists, policymakers, business leaders and farmers organizations to undertake and apply holistic assessments of agricultural systems, practices, products and policies.

Through its work, the initiative highlights the need for organisations in the food system to better understand their impacts and dependencies on natural, social and human capital, and provides them with the guidance to apply this information in their decisions in ways that deliver benefits across the system.

As part of a new project generously supported by the EU, the Capitals Coalition work with IBCSD as part of this global UNEP project, with the overall goal of building resilience, mainstreaming best practice, protecting biodiversity and contributing to a more sustainable agriculture and food sector in Indonesia. Other seven EU partner countries are: Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico and Thailand.
