The Effects of Alternative Agriculture and Fair Trade on the Development of Producer Groups and Their Members: Case Studies from Northern ThailandDownload
This study examines the economic, social and environmental effects of alternative agricultural methods, traded through fair trade mechanisms, on producers in northern Thailand. These effects are compared with those of conventional agriculture and practised on the same farm). The chosen research...
