Research Webinar 22: Impacts of certification in cotton in India and Pakistan

Research webinar with Peter Lund-Thomsen from Copenhagen Business School on the effects of certification on farmers’ incomes, workers’ conditions and environmental pollution on cotton farms in India and Pakistan. This webinar, held on 16th November 2017, analyzes the effects of Better Cotton Initiative on farmers’ incomes, workers’ conditions and environmental pollution on cotton farms in the provinces of Sindh and Punjab, Pakistan and the states of Punjab and Gujarat, India. It uses a multi-scalar approach to look at effects at farm-level, local-level, state-level and national-level and explore to what extent these differences can be understood in relation to how cotton growing regions are tied into global production networks, pre-existing institutional support networks, and the varied geographical and climatic conditions in which the projects are located.
