GCRF Trade, Development and the Environment Hub

Lead Research Organisation: World Conservation Monitoring Cen WCMC
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.

Title Bending the Curve - Museum Exhibition 
Description An exhibition between Senckenberg and the Frankfurter Kunstverein and the Frankfurt Zoo. Without biodiversity, human existence on planet Earth is not possible. However, biodiversity has been declining for too long. And at an alarming pace. This insight unites the team of curators at the Frankfurter Kunstverein, who have invited the Senckenberg Biodiversity and Climate Research Center and the Frankfurt Zoo to join forces in an interdisciplinary collaboration. The result is the new exhibition Bending the Curve - Knowledge, Action, Care for Biodiversity, the title of which alludes to the concept "Bending the Curve of Biodiversity Loss". The question is how the negative trend can be stopped or even reversed. And it's about positive narratives. This is what the positions from art and science collected in the show deal with. They illustrate ways and ideas for action to recover ecosystems and serve the goal of reversing the tide of the biodiversity crisis.

Title FSC Rubber Certification 
Description A film aimed at companies and consumers to highlight the need for rubber certification 
Type Of Art Film/Video/Animation 
Year Produced 2022 
Impact Natural rubber can be found in almost every industry. Despite the sustainability potential, the rubber supply chain has been opaque, often contributing to deforestation and human rights abuses. FSC, by contrast, has been on a quest to give smallholders, brands and stakeholders throughout the supply chain an opportunity to overcome these challenges. But what exactly does this mean at the forest level? Through exclusive interviews with nearly a dozen smallholder rubber farmers from several certified groups throughout Thailand, learn how FSC forest stewardship standards are delivering environmental, social and economic impacts for individuals and how you can get involved in sustainable natural rubber.

Year Produced 2022 
Impact In recent weeks, the Cerrado Network has drawn up the Charter for the Peoples of the Cerrado, addressed to the European Union. The main objective is to include our biome in the regulation that requires zero deforestation for the importation of agricultural products. A necessary request, since the Cerrado is a Brazilian biome that covers a territory equivalent to the combined surfaces of France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Denmark, Holland and Belgium, where more than 25 million people live. It is an extremely biodiverse biome recognized as a planetary hotspot, which includes more than 5% of the world's biodiversity, with more than 12,000 species of native plants and a high level of endemism. The Cerrado has important contributions to the regional and global climate balance due to its carbon stocks. And, therefore, we expect the support of the members of the Council, Commission and Parliament of the European Union in this fight to care for the people who protect the fauna and flora of our collective home, which is the Earth.

Description The TRADE Hub's efforts have led to significant advancements in promoting sustainability and biodiversity conservation across global agricultural supply chains. The project has delivered around 1000 outputs that have built capacity, enhanced scientific understanding, and delivered impact at international, national and local levels.

We have contributed to changes in policies, laws and public programmes in the EU, UK, Brazil, Gabon, DRC, Tanzania and national scales. We have influenced multilateral environment, climate change and trade agreements affecting all nations on earth. We have created an understanding of the challenges faced by small holder farmers and how their needs can be better met. And we have worked with business involved in supply chains to help them better address social and environmental risks and dependencies in their supply chains, with 100s of companies already applying some of the work we have delivered.

As we enter the final year of the project we are synthesizing the impact delivered, the scientific learning achieved, and proposing the best ways forward for a more sustainable trade in wildmeat and agricultural commodities.
Some examples of what has been achieved in terms of impact includes:

In Brazil, for example, the hub mapped existing sustainability policy instruments, pinpointing gaps and inefficiencies in addressing broader social and environmental sustainability issues associated with soy production. These findings spurred private sector actors to propose innovative solutions, such as initiatives aimed at improving education and job creation to combat deforestation.
Similarly, in the rubber industry, the hub's efforts resulted in the formulation of sustainability standards and certification programs, prompting major tire companies like Michelin and Bridgestone to adopt strategies aimed at reducing their carbon footprint and preserving biodiversity. Furthermore, the promotion of bamboo as a substitute for plastic led to the drafting of global action plans, influencing policy dialogues, and gaining support from international forums like BRICS and the WTO.

By advocating for alternatives like bamboo and facilitating dialogues among governments, businesses, and civil society, the hub has contributed to reducing plastic pollution and promoting sustainable practices in various industries. Additionally, its work has enhanced traceability and transparency in supply chains, empowering consumers to make informed choices and supporting initiatives for responsible sourcing and production.

Through tool development and research, we have empowered countries to make informed decisions regarding wildlife trade regulations and sustainable hunting practices. Collaborations with China, Tanzania, and other countries have led to policy improvements, such as enhanced labelling systems and updated wildlife trade laws, promoting sustainable trade practices.
Exploitation Route The outcomes of the funding are targeted at different user groups in specific ways. For example, the work on trade systems for agricultural commodities has been targeted at farmers, national governments, international agreements, UN agencies, and bodies such as the World Trade Organisation.

Policymakers can leverage the hub's findings to inform the design and implementation of regulations and agreements, ensuring that trade practices align with environmental and social objectives.

Businesses can adopt best practices and standards developed with support from the hub to enhance their sustainability credentials and meet consumer demand for ethically sourced products.

Continued collaboration with international organizations like the WTO and multilateral agreements such as the CBD can mainstream biodiversity considerations into global trade frameworks.

Moreover, the hub's tools and platforms, such as traceability systems and biodiversity metrics, can be further refined and adopted by industry actors to monitor and improve their supply chain practices.

Insights have been turned into tools, web-based platforms, policy papers for environmental agreements, and inputs into business facing guidance materials.

Each of our target audiences has been receptive to our inputs and there is much evidence of processes being influenced that affect all countries on earth, thousands of companies, and millions of producers and consumers.

We are confident that our synthesis work in the last year will pull research results together in even more accessible ways, and spin-off projects to be formed that build on our results from the GCRF funds.

Some examples to illustrate the above: The TRADE Hub has made a massive contribution by developing data sets (e.g. EII) and indicators (e.g. GEIC) for measuring the impact of trade on biodiversity. These data sets have been adopted by monitoring and reporting frameworks (e.g. CBD GBF, TNFD, SBTN) that are used by governments and large companies to assess and address the impact of their activities. TRADE Hub funding has been used to develop two key tools (CITES Wildlife TradeView and the NDF support tool) for Parties to the CITES convention, which allows civil servants to assess the volume of trade in protected species and set quotas for sustainable extraction. These tools can be put to use for governance and management purposes, as well as awareness raising.

Description The insights generated by the TRADE Hub have played a role in shaping policies, practices, and collaborations across various levels. 1. Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs): MEA negotiating governments and secretariats have directly used TRADE Hub supported materials on (for example) targets and indicators in the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework, the decision making process of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species, and the FACT dialogue of the UNFCCC COP26. We are working directly with the secretariats of the CITES and CBD conventions in our final year of operation to maximise impact, and have a similar close working relationship with WTO in Geneva. Insights from the project have also been incorporated into global assessments by esteemed bodies such as the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES). Specifically, the project's research on sustainable species use significantly influenced the IPBES Sustainable Use of Species Assessment, garnering endorsement from 94 member countries. 2. Farmers/forest users: We have worked with farmers and farmer support organisations to generate empirical evidence to support decision making to address the challenges faced by farmers in developing countries. Our work has generated considerable insights that we have fed into business and policy facing discussions at national to global levels. 3. Hunters and Wildlife Trade: Our research has influenced policy changes in countries like the Congo Basin, Tanzania, Indonesia, and China, leading to the provision of alternatives to wild meat protein and initiating behavioral change campaigns. The full impact of these efforts is yet to be realized. 4. National policies : Our work on wildlife and wild meat trades has been taken up by governments in China (wild bird trade) and in Gabon, DR Congo and RO Congo in Africa on wildmeat trades, and Tanzania on hunting regulations. Indonesia and Brazil governments are considering how they will work with the EU deforestation free supply chains regulation, informed by TRADE Hub policy work directly with the EU. Moreover, the project's collaboration with China led to recommendations that were integrated into the revised Chinese Wildlife Protection Law, reflecting a tangible impact on national legislation. Similarly, in the UK, research findings informed parliamentary debates on proposed legislation regarding hunting trophies, ultimately shaping policy decisions. 5. Business: TRADE Hub teams are taking insights from the field and working with business facing networks developing guidance, often aligned to the Target 15 of the Global Biodiversity Framework and EU and UK laws on deforestation free trade. These networks - especially the Science Based Targets for Nature and the Task Force for Nature Related Financial Disclosure - have developed guidance for companies and financial bodies. It is expected that these will have major impacts on the business sector.

Description Camera trapping training for Tanzania
Geographic Reach National 
Policy Influence Type Influenced training of practitioners or researchers
Impact The training produced a detailed document about a suitable field protocol for camera trapping in western Tanzania. The objective of camera trapping in the TRADE project was to generate baseline information on the density of key wildlife species in bushmeat hunting and trade across different conservation landscapes. The camera traps captured species preferred by both unauthorised and legal subsistence hunters. We believe that once fully analysed and reported this information would inform wild meat trade policy in Tanzania, especially the recently introduced game meat selling scheme (bushmeat butcheries) in 2020 through Government Notice No. 84 published on 07 July 2020, and the resident hunting scheme, so wildlife losses through consumptive use would not be intensified in the country.

Impact This scientific research contributes to the understanding of the interaction between multiple targets in biodiversity and ecosystem services, considering the cost-benefit of nature restoration and conservation actions. We know the importance of publishing the results as soon as possible and our human resources are focused on this topic. However, the funding cut news delayed the hire of new collaborators and added multi-tasks for our researchers, which postpone the completion of some outputs and may generate anxiety for the dissemination of the results to partners.

Title Social Risk Register Tool 
Description The python data tool described in this technical brief presents the operationalization of the Social Risk Register (SRR) methodology developed in cooperation with the TRADE Hub project. It builds on initial research conducted within a master's thesis by T. Hilber (2022). The purpose of the social risk register methodology is to visualize and assess the spatial patterns of agricultural production, risk factors and well-being. It was developed in the context of soy production and well-being in the Brazilian Cerrado. The development of the SRR tool was the culmination of research on the creation and application of a social risk register methodology related to soy production in the Brazilian Cerrado. This lead to an adaptable methodology that can be further refined to take other statistical calculations and analyses into account or to focus on specific location, or context specific, aspects depending on the use-case. The tool is basic but easy-to use and has the potential to be adapted to other, thematic issues and contexts in its applications. It does not involve a complicated installation process or any coding knowledge to run. With more time the tool could be refined to offer even more valuable insights into how patterns of production are in a spatial relation to patterns of well-being.

PI Contribution consortium is lead by IIASA
Collaborator Contribution Research and NGO partners (including many TRADE-HUB partners) contribute to the research design & work as well as to the outreach activities
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.

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.
