Department Name: Science Unit

Abstract

Our GCRF TRADE Hub addresses a global challenge that has led to dramatic decline in biodiversity and ecosystem resilience in the past century, and if not addressed will significantly imperil the development of lower income nations. Trade in wildlife and agricultural commodities from low and middle income to higher income countries has increased rapidly over the last decades, and is projected to expand rapidly into the future to meet demands. Although trade is vital for national development, it also can carry heavy environmental and social costs, particularly for poor rural people in DAC countries, mainly because there is a great imbalance of power within the decision-making system and the most affected people are relatively powerless and voiceless in the decision-making process. The development of these trades over the past decades have has also resulted in considerable impacts on natural systems, threatening with extinction thousands of species globally. Addressing the issue of balancing the positives of ever-expanding trade with its costs is essential to addressing several of the SDGs, to protect and promote livelihoods within vulnerable communities in DAC countries, and is important for the UK in terms of negotiating sustainable trade deals that also meet other environmental and social development commitments.

The Hub will work on a number of key trade flows that are particularly important to our focal developing countries and the UK, and where we have existing strengths that will allow us to have real impact in the lifetime of the Hub. This will include trade that has a direct impact on biodiversity - for example the global trade in wildlife for a range of uses, including the regional and national trade in wild meat. It will also include agricultural commodity trades that have indirect impacts on biodiversity through conversion or degradation of habitats. Its strong international and interdisciplinary research team, including economists, trade modellers, political scientists, ecologists and development scientists, will produce novel, impact-orientated research. Through involving companies, UN-related trade bodies and governments, the project will be embedded in the needs of the economy and development at large.

We have ten work packages: During the project design phase WP0 will further elaborate a detailed theory of change and mapping exercise leading to the co-design of the research programme with critical stakeholders (private sector actors, trade organisations and NGOs). This will lead into the delivery of eight interlinked work packages: WP1: Understanding wildlife trade from DAC countries (live animals, skins, non-timber products, wildmeat) at the supply end; volumes and characteristics of local and export trade, and impacts on biodiversity and resource users; WP2: Understanding supply to demand-end agricultural commodity trade pathways, volumes and characteristics, within and exported from DAC countries; WP3: Determining the magnitude and spatial-temporal distribution of social benefits and costs for selected wildlife and commodity supply chains from the supply to demand ends; WP4: Understanding how trade and economic policies impact on wild-sourced and agricultural commodity trades and their impact on people and nature; WP5: Modelling the implementation of different scenarios of trade policy and corporate decision making; WP6: Developing solutions and building capacity through engagement with the private sector (large corporations and investors); WP7: Developing solutions and building capacity, through engaging with trade public sector rule-setting agencies and national policy makers; WP8: Outreach and Technology Solutions. We also have a cross-cutting WP9: building DAC partner capacity to ensure ongoing, sustainable research-led solutions to TRADE's intractable challenge. We involved DAC countries, corporations, investment bodies, and UN-linked trade agencies in the co-design of this Hub from the outset.

Planned Impact

Impact activities constitute a large proportion of the work plan. These activities have been co-designed with impact partners ranging from international government-led trade bodies, local to international NGOs, global research and outreach organisations, and major corporations and investment bodies. We have developed a detailed theory of change with the partnership, and this has been reviewed and verified as credible by our impact partners. It includes an assessment of assumptions and risks that need to be managed. This Theory of Change and the associated Logical Framework will guide our impact work and will be elaborated at project start.

In the private sector, we have already obtained written commitments to work with the hub from some of the world largest companies: Mars, Kering, Asda, Ingredion and AB Agri. A further array of other international companies have also indicated interest to be involved to help maximize the Hubs impact ranging from commodity traders to financial institutions. Our academic partners, WCMC, and our NGO partners (WRI, WWF and TRAFFIC) all have further active programmes with companies that we can build upon as the Hub starts. We have also secured support from membership organizations that count multi-nationals and investment banks among their members, as convened by the UN Environment's Finance Initiative.

Among trade and policy related bodies, we have core team members from UN Environment's Environment and Trade Hub, Chatham House, and commitment to participate from the UNEP Finance Initiative. Other agencies, such as CITES, the World Economic Forum, Food and Agriculture Organisation, and the Organisation for Economic and Commercial Development have also stated their interest. When the TRADE Hub is operational we believe that more of these highly influential bodies will join the work.

At the end of the project we expect to have delivered a number of tangible outcomes and impacts: a) co-developed, with impact partners in the UK, international bodies and DAC countries, realistic scenarios of policy options for the development of global trade to alleviate poverty without reducing biodiversity; b) enhanced the evidence base, traceability and transparency for key commodity and wildlife trade flows and their impacts; c) developed new ways to show how biodiversity-impacting trade flows from hub countries to other parts of the world, and within these countries, affects natural capital and social development, and proposed an action plan to tackle emerging challenges now and into the future; d) identified and promoted local solutions to trade-related sustainability issues affecting wildlife and vulnerable people; e) defined pathways toward positive changes in biodiversity impacts, within multiple trade flows and with concrete implementation of demonstration projects on the ground in at least one country; f) thereby prompted a change in trade decisions from at least one developing country and for at least one key trade flow between the developing world and the developed world (including the UK); g) catalysed a measurable change in the way global trade is conducted in at least three major business operations and changed how trade benefits and impacts are measured and accounted for by governments and business; h) built capacity in developing countries, enabling sustainable and growing networks supporting interdisciplinary research excellence and policy influence on trade-related issues.

Our approach to impact also aims to ensure the sustainability of the work of the TRADE Hub. By involving an array of permanent agencies, we plan to embed the work within these agencies to allow the thrust of the work to continue long after the funding ends. We will also spend time towards the end of the funded Hub period on activities related to fundraising, ensuring continuation and legacy of the work, and keeping the most productive elements working on these issues.

Description With a focus on trade in wild species and agricultural commodities, the TRADE Hub seeks to address the longstanding tension between trade-induced economic growth, environmental and social impacts, especially for vulnerable population groups. The work is highly relevant to current global debates on the nexus between climate, trade, food systems, health and biodiversity loss. Our work directly involves and is relevant to most key value chain stakeholders, from farmers and forest users, through business and finance agencies, supply chain actors and consumers, to those setting national and global policy and laws. Collectively the TRADE Hub is working across the trade spectrum, providing and developing underpinning research and knowledge, and promoting its use in the context of a dramatic increase in the demands for change.

Our findings are grouped around the TRADE Hub "Big Wins" that the project is working towards:

Farmers and forest users are empowered to shift to more sustainable practices and obtain fair economic returns for their traded products. Here, we have conducted research around trade and farmer wellbeing, cropping systems that can provide better value for smallholders under current trade rules and market regimes, gender dynamics of commodity trade, and impacts of certification schemes. We have established our researchers' voices in the trade and environment space in our focal countries, particularly in Brazil for social and environmental impacts of production in the Brazilian Cerrado, coffee and oil palm in Indonesia and Tanzania, cocoa in Cameroon, and rubber and bamboo in China.

Local to national regulation of nature and social impacts of trade is strengthened to impact both upstream and downstream aspects of trade. Across the DAC countries in the TRADE Hub, a series of activities are underway to look at how agricultural and wildlife trades are supported by national laws and regulations and how these can be updated to deliver better protection for biodiversity and food security and better health to local people. The TRADE Hub has developed indicators and provided advice to better represent biodiversity and social equality issues within national level policy, laws and initiatives, with the UK Government, the EU and some of our DAC country partners.

Nature and social considerations are more visible in the work of business and finance companies involved with trade. The TRADE Hub is supporting private sector action by developing methodologies and enhancing capacity around measurement of environmental and social impacts associated with supply chains, supporting initiatives aimed at driving corporate actions aligned with global goals and commitments, and raising awareness of the risks to business and finance associated with unsustainable production systems and trade. We are also doing research on innovative technologies that can facilitate supply chain transparency. Currently our impacts relate to the development and uptake by business of tools and metrics for measuring impacts and helping identify actions that can be taken to drive a transition to sustainable trade.

Multilateral development goals linking nature, people and trade are strengthened. We have completed a series of interventions targeted at the major international agreements. Particular impact has been delivered around the monitoring framework for the post-2020 global biodiversity framework, deforestation-free supply chains that are relevant to UNFCCC and providing a means for parties in CITES and CMS to better utilise data on wildlife trades and take action on trades they regard as unsustainable.

Nature and social factors are better considered in international trade agreements. We have identified key leverage points in the trade system that we seek to influence via outreach, engagement, and the provision of knowledge and capacity building. TRADE Hub has ensured that the specific issue of biodiversity gained visibility in various prominent trade fora, in particular at the WTO, where discussion on biodiversity has been made much more visible as a result of TRADE Hub work. This has contributed to raising the visibility of biodiversity-related issues in related circles. We have conducted and communicated several studies of free trade agreements and produced a primer on how nature fits into the sustainable trade agenda.

The "building back better" post COVID-19 agenda integrates nature and social considerations of trade. The team's work included writing a range of research papers synthesising the evidence about the role of wildlife and wild meat trades in pandemics, especially COVID-19.
Exploitation Route We have worked to identify 18 pathways to impact for different areas of the TRADE Hub work. Each of these highlights how the research and technical work we are doing can be taken up and used in ongoing processes to deliver long term impact. For example, in our work on wildlife trade we have developed a online tool to support decision making by CITES parties that is fully owned by the CITES convention. This approach to taking research and packaging it up into products that can be used permeates across the TRADE Hub work. We are taking a similar approach in our engagement with the private sector - where we are working to deliver science, technology and tools that they will be able to use. This is also true of the work with farmers at the local level, with our engagement with the WTO and the CBD post-2020 process, and with those crafting trade agreements and working to operationalise 'zero deforestation supply chains'. We will continue in the same way in the remainder of the project as embedding our results in long lasting policy processes and the way that business and governments operate will maximise impact. To facilitate this we have recently employed a synthesis officer who will work for 2 years bringing our results together in coherent packages of output and making them available to targeted audiences through an enhanced outreach programme around our series of big wins.

Description The TRADE Hub fed directly into the UK treasury report "The Economics of Biodiversity: The Dasgupta review" which is resulting in policy change within the whole of the UK Government. This also led to additional, currently ongoing in-country work for UK government looking at how the recommendations in this report can be implemented in national contexts. TRADE Hub built and launched the first wildlife trade visualisation tool. The "CITES Wildlife Trade View" tool has been adopted by CITES for use at the convention secretariat level and with all 183 member countries. TRADE Hub has built and launched a "Post-2020 indicators" tool launched at CBD technical meetings and feeds into negotiations of all member nations. It will become a core tool in the delivery of the post-2020 framework. TRADE Hub has financed wildmeat behavioural change work in DR Congo. This is leading to direct impacts on unsustainable wildmeat consumption in that country. TRADE Hub has worked with the World Trade Organisation to put biodiversity and 'nature' more generally into the discussions of the Ministerial meetings at the WTO. This is the first time that this has been done, and generated considerable interest. TRADE Hub has also worked with the EU and the UK Government on approaches to measure biodiversity within international trade for different countries and how 'zero deforestation trade' might be operationalised and measured. In the UK this work is now adopted as a formal national statistical approach of government. TRADE Hub has also worked directly with a series of companies, mainly in Scandinavia, and the advice provided has been taken up into the business practices of these companies across large volume supply chains

Impact The Bending The Curve initiative set out to advance quantitative modelling techniques towards ambitious scenarios for biodiversity. A proof of concept analysis was initiated in 2010 to explore the action space towards bending the global loss of biodiversity from land use change, by linking global land use models to global models of biodiversity. The analysis resulted in an academic article in the peer-reviewed journal Nature, released jointly with WWF's 2020 Living Planet Report (joint release). The analysis was also central to IPBES's Global Assessment Report and CBD's 5th Global Biodiversity Outlook. An additional contribution to the 30 by 30 report was made by the land-use modelers involved in the bending the curve initiative and proof of concept analysis, currently being written as article manuscript. Further activities are in the design phase.

The co-applicant is professor Lorenzo Lotti from UCL Bartlett School of Environment, Energy & Resources. Silvia proposed the idea, refined it together with professor Lotti and wrote the proposal.
Collaborator Contribution The collaborator helps with refining the research question and designing the survey according to behavioural economics research practices. He contributed to writing the proposal and contributes to running the research activities.
Impact Behavioural economics can provide useful insights on behaviours and decision-making related to the environment. For example, it can provide insights on individuals' willingness to pay for environmental benefits that are produced at large-scale and therefore are less tangible and immediate than local benefits. This question is very relevant to understand consumers' willingness-to-pay for premium prices for products with lower environmental impacts and how does that vary with distance from production country. This study is also relevant to understand the feasibility of payment transfers between countries for biodiversity conservation. We plan to run a survey to test how Londoners' willingness to pay changes with the scale at which environmental benefits are expected to be experienced. This is a small, pilot project that will result in a publication and a workshop bringing together ecologists and economists at UCL. Hopefully, further interdisciplinary research around this question will be encouraged by the workshop.

Description Upscaling the adoption of cost-effective climate-smart agricultural techniques in Madagascar 
Organisation Middlesex University
Country United Kingdom 
Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution I am a partner on a successful funding application to Adaption Research Alliance Microgrants. The proposal is inspired by a previous funding application with the same partners that was led by me. For the current project, I contributed in defining the scope and research questions and in writing the proposal. I will participate remotely in the activities of the project.
Collaborator Contribution The project is led by the collaborator at University of Antananarivo.
Impact This project will bring together multiple stakeholders to identify the most effective climate-smart agriculture (CSA) practices in the south and western Madagascar's contexts and address critical knowledge gaps on key enablers and barriers to CSA adoption. This will involve a series of workshops, starting with farmers in rural villages, then a larger group bringing other regional stakeholders to the same rural setting. Knowledge co-produced from these workshops will feed into a third hybrid workshop attended by international researchers. These workshops will aim to advance our understanding of the challenges faced by farmers, and the potential for CSA adoption in Madagascar, by identifying i) what works and is cost effective in a given context, ii) the factors influencing the dissemination and adoption of CSA techniques. This information will be used to support the scaling of cost-effective CSA techniques in drought-prone regions to enhance livelihoods and food security of smallholder farmers in Madagascar.
