Best Practices for Organic Policy: What Developing Countries Can Do to Promote the Organic Agriculture Sector
United Nations Environment Programme

This study recommends that developing-country Governments should generally focus on playing a facilitating rather than a controlling role. They should engage in dialogue with their organic sectors to identify their most pressing needs and consider conducting an integrated assessment of the sector. Integrating organic agriculture into overall agricultural policies and poverty reduction strategies, and building organic agriculture supply capacities through education, research, extension services, local and regional market development and export facilitation, are key to realizing the benefits that organic agriculture offers.

Payments for Ecosystem Services: Getting Started - A Primer
The Katoomba Group, United Nations Environment Programme, Forest Trends

This primer is designed to provide you with a solid understanding of what Payments for Ecosystem Service (PES) are and how PES deals work. It is intended for an audience interested in exploring the potential of PES either as prospective PES sellers themselves or as staff of organizations that work directly with communities or landowners who may be interested in PES. The primer should be read before you set out to design a PES deal, as it provides guidance on conditions under which PES is most relevant and likely to succeed. It should also be read sequentially, as concepts defined in the early pages are built upon later.
