National Sustainability Curricula (NSCs)

An NSC is a document that aligns private and public stakeholders in a producing country on the biggest threats to production and the sustainable farming techniques that should be applied to address them. Endorsed by the national government, it serves as the foundation for practical field manuals focusing on sustainable farming techniques. Using the Baseline Common Code to underpin national sustainability curriculum helps producing countries build recognition for their compliance to an international sustainability standard and increases market access.
