Research Webinar 13: Benefits of eco-labelling in developing countries

Research webinar with Anna Carlson on the benefits of eco-labelling in developing countries. Eco-labelling (or environmental certification) is often promoted as a regulatory instrument capable of incentivizing sustainable resource use, even in the absence of stringent government environmental regulations. This webinar held on 20th April 2017, presents meta-synthesis research assessing the type and extent of producer benefits reported in case studies of forestry and marine certification, in developing countries, and whether these benefits can justify the cost of certification. Types of benefits studied range from price premiums and market access to less tangible benefits such as learning, governance, community empowerment, and reputational benefits.
