Best Practices Bulletins: Legal tools for responsible investment in agriculture
In this best practices series, IISD analyzes key legal and policy issues arising from the legal tools used by states to govern responsible investment in agriculture and food systems, with a particular focus on developing country and sustainable development perspectives.
These bulletins are designed to help government policy-makers and agricultural investment negotiators understand the benefits, limitations, legal risks, and policy issues raised by different legal tools for investment in agriculture.
IISD hopes that the bulletins will support policy-makers and negotiators in deciding whether and how to use certain legal tools to achieve their
country's sustainable development objectives for investment in agriculture and food systems. By doing so, IISD aims to level the playing field in agricultural investment negotiations and ensure access to the latest thinking and approaches.
