Learning from COSA and partners for growing your sustainability knowledge.
Success with market-based sustainability efforts depends on how you integrate them into your operations.
- “Only one initiative (COSA) included different treatments and conventional farms (as counterfactuals) in their sampling frame.”
- “Only six of the twenty-four initiatives have been designed to support decisions, of which only some decisions are specific, e.g. investment decisions supported by COSA”
- “There was a lack of clarity on data sharing arrangements in all but one agro-ecosystem initiative (COSA) and one livelihood initiative (LSMS-ISA), which both make their data publicly available.”
In this third issue brief, we present insights gathered by testing COSA’s resilience measurement approach that highlights its usefulness and adaptability with varying projects with different aims and scales, from impact to hot spots and performance monitoring assessments.
