Finance Alliance for Sustainable Trade



At the beginning of 2014, FAST, with the support of GIZ and the Amazon Alternative (TAA) and in collaboration with IRIS launched a project to develop impact indicators for the sustainable forestry industry sector. The project seeks to generate a set of indicators and standards based on FAST's broader metrics for agricultural SMEs which measure and report the social, economic and environmental impacts of investments made in the sustainable forestry sector.

This Fall, our member Fairtrade Canada welcomed Chief Adam Tampuri, a cashew farmer from Ghana, to visit many partners and stakeholders across Canada such as Fairtrade licensees, and universities and towns supporting Fair Trade.
