ROME – A long-awaited report from the International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC), which draws on several years of collaborative international efforts to develop a set metrics for measuring sustainability in cotton farming, is now available to view. 'Measuring Sustainability in Cotton Farming Systems – Towards a Guidance Framework' provides an overview of sustainability issues in global cotton farming and recommends "a set of indicators to assess and measure progress in addressing the critical sustainability issues for cotton farming." The report was produced by the Expert Panel on the Social Environmental and Economic Performance of Cotton Production (SEEP), an advisory body of ICAC.
