sustainable agriculture
Sustainable Agriculture
  • Sustainable agriculture is a global agenda
    • Environmental health
    • Economic profitability
    • Social and economic equity

“meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”

  • Stewardship of natural and human resources
    • involves maintaining and supporting this vital resource base for the long term.
    • consideration of stakeholders of the industry, laborers, rural communities, consumer health and safety, both in the present and future.
need for sustainable agriculture
Need for sustainable agriculture
  • Constraints on natural resources – real constraints
  • High production costs – higher risks, competition for resources
  • Consumers awareness
    • Better informed
    • Better educated
    • Greater purchasing power
  • Supermarkets –competition among peers for customers
  • Importing countries – global concern, Trade barriers
  • Food quality –food safety, food nutrition
benefits of greening the agri food value chain
Benefits of greening the agri-food value chain
  • Enhance food safety –thro’ improving coordination with suppliers
  • Improve environmental conservation –thro’ demands on suppliers
  • Reduce risk and liabilities in production –less recalls of products
  • Lower costs –thro’ better integration with suppliers, better design, 3Rs’
  • Improve productivity –introduce efficient operations management,
  • Create innovative opportunities for practitioners
  • Create market access –demands by importers, supermarkets
  • Create corporate image
  • Create competitive advantage – costs, market, credibility, price

implementing green agri food value chain
Implementing green agri-food value chain
  • Promoting awareness – involve the private sector, school children
  • Develop marketing and market access
  • Create green network for stakeholders – forums, champions
  • Incorporate guidelines, standards & codes of practice
    • Voluntary participation
    • Develop national standards –benchmark, certification
    • Other standards – pesticides control, energy, waste disposal
  • Introduce measures to improve productivity
  • Introduce traceability system
  • Build credibility and consumer confidence
elements of a green agri food value chain framework
Deterioration of ecosystem from population pressure

Loss of bio-diversity from expansion and intensive cultivation

Need to review natural resource management strategies for food production

Need to review wastewater and toxic waste management from food production

Need to address consumers demands for safe, clean and sustainable agri-food production

Guiding principles of green agri-food value chain

Food quality, safety and hygiene

Food security

Environmentally sustainable agriculture

Economically sustainable agriculture

Green agri-food value chain allows the simultaneous improvement in agri-food production and environment protection by analyzing critical points of agri-food production, from growing to consumption, lowering risks and liabilities on the environment and increasing productivity at each stage of the process.

Consumer awareness is the biggest driver to the green agri-food value chain process

The competition of supermarkets forces them to insist on growers and suppliers compliance to evolving standards of food safety, environmental sustainability and affordable price

Elements of a green agri-food value chain framework

Rationale of green

agri-food value chain


Concepts of green

agri-food value chain

The business relationships between upstream stakeholders are vital to promote green agri-food production with mutual benefits

Establish open market trading system, effective TOT, develop clear guidelines to production standards and capacity building

Establish positive enabling environment: land allocation, infrastructure, R&D capability

Review agriculture policy

Establish social / political support to green agri-food production

Develop awareness campaigns of green agri-food production

Create green network among all stakeholders of the chain

Introduce and incorporate green guidelines (Codes of Practice) in agri-food chain

Approaches to green

agri-food value chain


Implementing policies in

green agri-food

value chain


  • Regular review and up-date of standards
  • Benchmark to national standards
  • Advance from voluntary compliance to certification
  • Achieve the goals and targets of signatory and international protocols

Monitoring / evaluating

goals and targets
