This issue focuses on the role played by regulations and standards in global value chains and identifies important policy implications in terms of sustainability dynamics. Various contributors explore how new partnership models could help African producers reap more benefits from sustainability standards. It also presents a series of policy options to support collective governmental action with a view to promoting sustainable development through the improved governance and operation of private standards.
